WATCH: Family fishing on lake rescues bear with plastic container stuck on its head

Dennis Isaac of Evansville pulls his boat onto a trailer as Ryan Cottrell, 11, waits to disembark at Blue Grass Fish and Wildlife Area Thursday afternoon, June 25, 2020. \”We were after bluegill and crappie and we wound up catching some bass,\” Isaac said. Rod Cottrell, Ryan’s dad, was also fishing with the trio. Ds62520bluegrass01 © DENNY SIMMONS / COURIER & PRESS via Imagn Content Services, LLC

This is pretty remarkable. The Hurt family was out fishing on a lake in Northern Wisconsin when a young bear was spotted swimming with a plastic container stuck on its head. The bear was clearly distressed and in danger. That’s when the Hurt family sprung to the rescue.

This video is really awesome. A team effort that took multiple attempts, the Hurt family finally removed the container from the bear’s head and it was clearly relieved afterward.

That’s not something you see every day, to be sure.
