Bear Gets Head Stuck in Plastic Jar, Becomes IRL Winnie the Pooh

Silly bear, there's no honey in there

A bear with a plastic jar stuck on its head was bumbling around a Canadian city early morning Easter Sunday — a scenario that the CBC joked is reminiscent of the iconic illustrations of Winnie the Pooh scarfing down honey in a pot face first.

Police found the black bear wandering around Lively (a part of Greater Sudbury, Ontario), unable to remove a plastic jar intended for birdseed from its head and “walking into a variety of objects including a police cruiser,” according to a statement from the Greater Sudbury Police. The bear was tranquilized and removed from the area.

Fortunately, residents have little to fear; black bear attacks are generally rare.
