Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Employees at a Minnesota vacation resort rescued two baby bears that somehow managed to trap themselves inside a secured dumpster.

Cascade Vacation Rentals in Lutsen posted a video to Facebook showing the cubs escaping from the dumpster after employees fashioned a broken futon frame into a makeshift ladder.

The resort said a groundskeeper went to the dumpster in the early morning and she said the security bars were in place before she opened it and came face to face with the mother bear.

The mama bear jumped out on her own, but employees soon discovered her two cubs were still inside the dumpster.

"None of the bears were harmed and shortly after the rescue all three bears descended from the tree and ran off into the nearby woods," the Facebook post said. "The staff is investigating how the bears managed to get into the dumpsters with the bear bars securely attached. For now, the dumpster is safe and bear-free!"
