A family in Wisconsin was out spending the day fishing on the lake when they came across a bear with its head stuck in a plastic jar.
The poor thing was having a hard time breathing as it was also trying to get to land. They’d have to be careful, but they knew they needed to try to help.
After several attempts, they finally got the boat close enough for the man to grab the jar and pull. This did the trick freeing the bear cub from the panic-inducing situation. The bear then went on its way and headed toward shore.
“Out on Marshmiller Lake yesterday with Brian Hurt and Brady Hurt when we spotted this poor bear. He made it to shore after all that,” Tricia Hurt said on Facebook.
This also serves as a nice reminder of the dangers of littering. Without these people around, it may not have ended so well for this cub.
