This was going to be a big day for bear scouts Brother, Sister, and Cousin Fred. To earn their Official Rescue Merit Badges, they had formed a rescue squad. Now all they had to do was find somebody to rescue.
"Finding somebody to rescue is no problem at all," said Papa. "You happen to be looking at the world's greatest rescue expert. I have rescued bears from every imaginable danger—roaring fires, raging rivers, terrible earthquakes. Just follow me and we'll find somebody to rescue pretty quick."
Papa was as good as his word. He found somebody right away. It was Grizzly Gran.
"Look!" shouted Papa. "Grizzly Gran is almost over her head in the pond! To the rescue!"
But when Papa dived into the pond, he found that Gran wasn't over her head at all. There had been a dry spell and the pond had become very shallow. Gran was simply resting on the bottom of the pond, cooling off.
"Don't you worry," said Papa after the bear scouts had pulled him out of the muck and hosed him down. "I'll help you earn your merit badges.
"Look! Right over there in Farmer Ben's meadow—Farmer Ben's daughter! She's being chased by a bull! To the rescue!"
But Papa was wrong again.
Farmer Ben's daughter was merely leading Old Bossy out for milking.
She wasn't in the bull's pen.
Papa was! And the huge, angry bull was coming after him like an express train!
