NO, it’s not Winnie The Pooh. It’s a bear in the city of Frazee, Minnesota. It’s got its head stuck in a plastic jar.

For six days the black bear has had its head stuck in the jar. Now it’s in the city for the Turkey Days celebration, when the locals pull on wattles, swords and huge moustaches to celebrate all things Turkey.

“When it got into town, our main concern was public safety,” says Rob Naplin, the Department of Natural Resources’ area wildlife supervisor. “I’m sure there was high anxiety and frustration with its predicament.”

The bear is now dead. And on a wall in Minnesota hangs a trophy that doubles as a night light and novelty bubble gum dispenser…
