A curious bear cub managed to get a bird feeder stuck on its head last month. A landowner in northwestern Wisconsin noticed the trapped bear and notified the Department of Natural Resources. State officials tried to help, but the cub’s overprotective mother kept them away.
Traps were set, and the cub and its mother were caught. The feeder was found next to them. It’s assumed the mother chewed it apart to free her cub. Officials released the bears into the woods.
