Talk about a grisly situation. It was all paws on deck Sunday, July 19 as an Ontario bear cub with its head lodged in a bucket was rescued by local residents using their bear (OK, bare) hands. The poor baby had apparently been stuck in the bucket for several days before being saved.\nIn a video posted to Facebook on Monday, July 20, you can see the frightened black bear cub rush up a tree just outside of Trevor Buchmann’s Kenogami, Ontario cottage.\nEditor's Choice: A Toronto Casting Call Will Pay You & Your Friends $1,000 To Be In A Cineplex Commercial\nAfter using just the bare necessities in their rescue, like a pole to gently knock the bear into the lake below, Buchmann and his friend Greg Elder were able to remove the red bucket.\nThen, they set this little fur baby up with some sweet snacks inside a dog kennel.\nInitially, the cub looks restless after what was likely an unbearable situation but it eventually warms up to the cottage-goers.\nFollowing the rescue, Kenny, named after the lake that helped save his life, will be heading to Bear With Us, a local sanctuary.\nAll's well that ends well! Only after a while, though.\nWith numerous reported spottings, Buchmann suspects Kenny had been wandering around like this for over a week, which is pretty heartbreaking.\n“We suspect the bear got stuck at the township dump maybe Sunday last. We first heard about him on Thursday but others had seen him before that near Highway 11 about 5 km from my house," Buchmann told Narcity via email.\nHad a bit of an adventure here yesterday. A black bear cub has been on the loose, abandoned by mom with a bucket on its head since at least Wednesday. Yesterday it found its way to our place and my friend Greg Elder and I managed to get the bucket off its head and it took some kibble and strawberries. Later Derek Elliot, from the MNR, came and took the cub overnight and today he will travel to Bear With Us, outside Huntsville, where he will overwinter before being released in the North again next spring. He’s called Kenny now for the lake we knocked him into in order to catch him.Posted by Trevor Buchmann on Monday, July 20, 2020\nAccording to The Toronto Sun, Elder and Buchmann received step-by-step instructions from a veterinarian during the rescue process.\nIt’s not every day that you see a bear in this kind of sticky situation.\nSpotting bears in the treetops certainly isn’t new for Ontario.\nTrevor Buchmann\nIn fact, a black bear was recently spotted playing peek-a-boo on an Ontario construction site while another burly bruin was seen roaming the streets of Barrie.\nAnd if you thought these wild bear sightings were exclusive to Northern Ontario, think again.\nJust last month, this fur baby was seen pawing their way through the streets in Markham.\nThe bucket, though, is a new twist. Thankfully, it all turned out alright.\nSo bear you have it. Enjoy your freedom, little Kenny!
