pooh black bear is back in the woods in Tennessee after getting help with a problem – a jar stuck on its head.
State wildlife officers looked for the bear for three weeks after reports he was caught in the jug. The Knoxville News Sentinel said the male bear was roaming around Newport, in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
On July 17, a wildlife officer was checking another report of the bear when the animal ran in front of her vehicle. Hammonds fired a tranquillizer dart and the bear collapsed in downtown Newport.
The bear weighed just 115 pounds, about half its expected weight. It was released into the Cherokee National Forest.
Wildlife officials believe the bear got into the jar while foraging through

A 10-year-old Florida boy became a man on Wednesday when he wrestled a 6-foot alligator and captured it!
Michael Dasher was fishing with his friends when he thought he hooked a big fish, but was surprised when an alligator rose up from the water and charged after him!
Michael hit the charging gator with sticks and even jumped on its back to wrestle it into submission.
Fortunately, Michael isn't actually a man yet because police and wildlife officials, called by his grandparents after Michael dragged the gator home, said he committed a felony!
The officers agreed not charge the 10-year-old as long as he promised to run away like a girl next time an alligator attacked, instead of staying to fight like a man. LOLz!
We kid, we kid. A child should definitely not be taking any chances against an animal known to swallow adults whole.
