A bear cub found itself trapped in a newly constructed basement in Vilas County, and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources staff had to get creative to get the little guy out safely. 

The DNR posted a video on Youtube showing crews lowering a ladder into the basement as the cub cries for its mother, which the DNR said watched the rescue from afar. 

The cub is a quick learner and climbed up the ladder to safety. 

It then ran into the woods to reunite with its mother.
