SUDBURY, Ont. - Police in this northern Ontario city saved a bear that could not get a large plastic jar off its head.

The white container had been used to store birdseed and police said the black bear likely wanted a snack when it stuck its head inside.

Police responded to a call around 5:30 a.m. Sunday of the bear walking down the street with the jar stuck on its head.

The bear could not get the jar off its head and continued to wander around, walking into a variety of objects, including a police cruiser.

The Ministry of Natural Resources was contacted and the bear was tranquilized.

The container had to be cut in order to remove it from the bear’s head.

The bear will be relocated.
