An animal crackers jar, appropriately enough

A bear cub got its head stuck trying to eat the crumbs at the bottom of a plastic jar of animal crackers while dumpster diving in a northern New Jersey town on Friday, June 27.

Officials from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection rescued the animal, which had climbed up a tree in Ringwood. It was tranquilized, then brought down, so firefighters could cut off the jar.

In April, a story about a bear that got its head stuck in a plastic birdseed bucket and wandered around the town of Lively in Ontario, Canada, went viral. Both incidents produced paw-sitively adorable photos.
