Florida Bear Rescued After Getting Head Stuck In Jar

A little black bear is alive after Florida biologists removed a plastic bottle stuck on its head for at least 10 days. The bear, his mother and two siblings regularly raided trash bins in Weirsdale, a small community in the vast Ocala National Forest.

The 6-month-old cub couldn't eat or drink normally, and was days away from death when he was freed, biologists say. It took 10 days for officials to track down the bear family using baited traps and following up frantic leads by concerned residents.

Not as uncommon as one might think

This was also part of the plot of the movie Ponyo. You should see it
