Bear gets head stuck in a COOKIE JAR and has to be rescued from tree
A young bear got its head stuck in a cookie jar – and was less than happy about it. The six-month-old cub found itself in a bit of a pickle after rummaging through bins on Friday in New Jersey, USA. It is believed he found himself some leftover animal crackers but was in for a surprise as he tried to remove his head from the container afterwards.
Officials from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) were alerted to the incident at around 6pm after the bear had made his way up a tree. To make matters worse, the 13kg animal then managed to get the jar lodged between two branches 12 metres above the ground. By this point the creature had become ‘unhappy and aggressive’.
Eventually the bear was sedated and brought down from the tree safely where firefighters cut away the plastic container. Afterwards the cub was washed off and taken to a rehabilitation centre where it will remain for four to six weeks before being released back into the wilderness. Sadly there was no sign of the mother but we’re guessing that he’s just happy to be back down to Earth at this point.
This isn’t the first time for a bear to help itself to some human food, as recently one was filmed taking pizza out of a fridge for a midnight snack.
