PERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CNN/SAMANTHA EIGENBROD) — In Pennsylvania, a black bear was dubbed the “bucket bear” after a run-in with a semi-air bag. The male cub was spotted in June with the bucket on its head and walked around with it for two months.
A local game commissioner said there wasn’t anything wildlife officials could do because the bear wasn’t hurting anyone. That’s when a group of people took action. They grabbed the bear and used a bow saw to free the animal.
