Someone gave this baby bear really bad scuba diving advice!

A Wisconsin family was out on their boat on Marshmiller Lake when they spotted what turned out to be a swimming baby bear with a jug on its head.

Trisha and Brian Hurt first spotted something in the water while fishing with their son, Brady.

“We thought it was a black lab in the water and had a jug on its head,” said Mr. Hurt. “Then as we got closer my wife is like, ‘No, that looks like a bear.’”

Never dreamt we would ever do this in our life time. Out on Marshmiller Lake yesterday with Brian Hurt and Brady Hurt when we spotted this poor bear. He made it to shore after all that.

That’s exactly what it turned out to be.

The young black bear had a plastic cheese ball jar stuck on its head. They knew they needed to help it out, so they attempted to pull up beside the bear and free it.

Cheese balls aren’t worth dying over

They were able to get it off after a couple of attempts and recorded the ordeal.

It’s a good thing they were able to remove the jug before it got away.

“Once I got it off you could really tell the difference, because, it was like, it could get proper air at that point,” Hurt said, “and it seemed like it revived quite a bit.”
