A family in Wisconsin was on Marshmiller Lake for a day of fishing when they encountered something unusual. Initially, Brian, his wife Tricia and son Brady thought that they were approaching a log in the water…then, they thought that the “log” was a black Labrador retriever with a jug on its head.
But as they got closer, they realized it was a bear whose head was stuck in a jug. The family worked together to approach the young bear and managed to get close enough to grab hold of the jug to try and free the bear’s head. The first attempt was met with failure, but the family was determined to free the struggling bear.
Brian described the bear’s struggles:
When I was right over top of it and pulling on it, you could hear the bear huffing and breathing very hard, just gasping for air,”
Thankfully, the second rescue attempt was met with success. The bear was visibly relieved to be free of the jug and promptly swam to shore and plopped down to rest.
Great job family!
