In a video released earlier this week, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers showed video of a Florida black bear cub with its head stuck in a giant plastic cheeseball tub.
"We received a call about a bear cub with a plastic cheeseball jar stuck on its head, and our experts were able to go to the scene," a rep for FWC posted on its Facebook page. "The adult bear was caught almost immediately, but it took a few hours to capture the cub and its sibling. Once all were successfully captured, our biologist slid a catch pole (a tool similar to what an animal control officer would use to catch a dog) into the trap to hold the plastic jar in place. The cub was then able to pull its head free! The plastic jar could have been fatal for the cub, but thanks to our team, it was able to be released into our robust black bear population!"
