JAMISON CITY (AP) – Four central Pennsylvania residents say they rescued a young bear whose head had been stuck in a plastic jar for at least 11 days.


The Press Enterprise of Bloomsburg reported Saturday that the group managed the feat while armed only with a rope and flashlight.


Area residents first spotted the 100-pound bruin with its head in a jar on June 3. But it eluded game wardens.


Then Thursday night, a man saw the animal in Jamison City. He joined two women and a local game commissioner on a wild chase to lasso the bear and remove the jar.


They say the frightened but powerful bruin fell into a swimming pool at least twice during the ordeal. But the group eventually yanked off the jar and set the animal free.
