SANTA ROSA BEACH — A Walton County sheriff's deputy helped a stranded bear cub out of a trash bin Tuesday.

According to a post on the Sheriff's Office's Facebook page, Deputy Keith Parsons rescued the cub from the bin at Louis Louis Restaurant.The cub apparently had become trapped there and separated from its sibling.

Parsons placed a ladder inside so the trapped cub could crawl out and rejoin its sibling, who was waiting in the woods nearby.

"It looks like Boo-Boo was trying to find a picnic basket," the sheriff's office wrote on the Facebook page.
