Big round ears get a Himalayan bear cub stuck in a can

In Primorsky Krai, the environmental police saved a two-year old Himalayan bear cub that got stuck in a can of paint.

The locals found the bear, exhausted and with a paint can on his head, by chance; they were also the ones who called the emergency services.

Taking necessary precautions, the professionals gave sleeping medicine to the animal which put him in the state of light sleep. After that, they finally managed to take the can off.

“The little bear wasn't able to get rid of the can himself, there was nothing to push against with his paws. His big round ears didn't help either,” — the rescue workers explained.

According to the rescuers, they examined the cub and didn't find any wounds or bruises. When he woke up, he immediately took off into the woods.
