VIDEO: Bucket head bear helped by strangers

PERRY TOWNSHIP, PA - In Pennsylvania, a black bear was dubbed the "bucket bear" after a run-in with a semi-air bag.

The male cub was spotted in June with the bucket on its head and walked around with it for two months.

A local game commissioner said there wasn't anything wildlife officials could do, because the bear wasn't hurting anyone.

That's when a group of people took action.

They grabbed the bear and used a bow saw to free the animal.
