Got Milk? Vermont Bear's Adventure Inside A Milk Gallon!

By Meera Dolasia on April 22, 2010

Over the weekend, a young Vermont black bear payed dearly for his curiosity. Upon coming across an old fashioned milk gallon, the bear decided to stick his head inside only to discover, that he could not pull it out again.

Bumping around boulders and trees, the poor little thing meandered around the forests for about six hours before he was spotted, lying down exhausted and breathing heavily!

State biologist Forest Hammond tranquilized the bear and tried to lubricate his head with soap to see if the gallon would slide off. When that did not work, he recruited some firefighters who helped cut the can off gently, releasing the poor bear from his misery.

The whole process took about 45 minutes, but when it was finally done, the bear was absolutely okay and scampered away unhurt, from what was probably his worst nightmare.

Vermont officials believe that the bear was hungry and decided to put his head in the gallon after spotting some bird food at the bottom. We have a feeling that the little guy has learned his lesson and will not be seen poking his head inside anything ever again!,
