It was almost as if it were a scene from Winnie The Pooh.
A young black bear near the major wildfire at Elephant Hill, close to Cache Creek in the BC Interior, had to be rescued after it got its head stuck in a bulk olive container.
According to BC Conservation Officer Service, ranchers in the area contacted authorities after they found the bear struggling with a container seemingly firmly affixed to its head.
Officers responded to the report and the container was successfully removed from the bear’s head.
All he wanted was some olives.
