A video on a Facebook page shows the daring rescue of a bear in Pennsylvania.

It appears the small black bear’s head was trapped inside of a plastic bucket and according to a Facebook page called “Save the Bucket Bear” set up on Sunday, the bear had been spotted with the bucket on head for more than a month.

Pictures of the “Bucket Bear” and pleas for the game commission in the Perry Township area to take humane action to help the bear were posted to the Facebook page.

Online reports say the men in the video are volunteers who went on a mission to help the bear after authorities did not respond immediately.

The video is pretty unbelievable and we do not suggest anyone attempting rescues like this—but it is nice to see a happy ending for the curious bear.
