Wis. Lumberjack Frees Bear From Milk Can

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - A logger in western Wisconsin was able to help a bear out of a sticky situation.

According to our sister station WQOW,  logger Garrett Smith was working in a forest next to a corn field in Rice Lake when he spotted a bear with an old milk can stuck on its head.

Smith got the landowner's permission to drive into the field with the skidder he uses to haul logs out of the woods.

It took several tries, but Smith was able to use the arm on the skidder to grip the can and pull it off the bear's head.

Once free, the bear took off for the woods.
