VIDEO: La Verne police help distressed bear cub out of a jam

- Way to go officers for helping a bear cub in need!

Police in La Verne responded to a call reporting a bear cub with its head stuck in a plastic jug at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, according to video posted on the police department’s Facebook page.

The video begins with police finding the distressed bear cub struggling to climb a fence.

An officer tries to remove the plastic jug from the cub’s head, then a police officer holds the bear still while a California Fish and Wildlife officer removes the jug. Once freed, the cub returns to the wild.

The cub seemed to be uninjured by its brief ordeal.
