Bear with airbag stuck on head finally freed

A bear nicknamed “The Bucket Bear” has been rescued in Clarion County, Pennsylvania.

The bear has been roaming around the Perry Township area for several weeks with a bucket-like airbag stuck on its head. This weekend, a group of people headed out to see if they could find the bear and help free it from the airbag.

Dean Hornberger, Jeff Kriebel, Kaitlyn Lakin, Eric Kriebel and Shawn Balcita searched the woods and brush for two hours before spotting the young black bear along a road.

They hopped into action to help save the bear. Balcita held the bear down while Jeff and Eric started sawing away at the airbag. It took them 30 to 40 minutes to eventually free the bear. After being cut free, the bear promptly ran back off into the woods.
