Colorado Springs police say a black bear cub that got its head stuck in a plastic container that holds protein powder got a ride in a patrol car to a fire station, where firefighters removed the jug with rescue tools.
The Gazette reports police found the female bear early Tuesday morning and were unable to remove the container. They loaded the bear into the backseat of their patrol car and headed to a nearby fire station.
A Colorado Parks and Wildlife officer sedated the bear before firefighters removed the container.
The bear was tagged and released in hopes it will be reunited with its mother.
