In this exciting episode of Mountain West Voices, producer Clay Scott recounts the rescue of an orphaned black bear cub on the Montana prairies, miles from suitable bear habitat.

The cub climbs a power pole, and it takes three game wardens several hours to safely tranquilize the bear and get him to a wildlife rehab center.
