The bear nicknamed “The Bucket Bear” has been rescued in Clarion County.
The bear has been roaming around the Perry Township area for several weeks with a bucket-like airbag stuck on its head. People looking to help the bear created a “Save The Bucket Bear” Facebook page.
They claim the Game Commission was contacted several times, but told them they couldn’t do anything about the bear.
This weekend, a group of people headed out to see if they could find the bear and help free it from the airbag.
Dean Hornberger, Jeff Kriebel, Kaitlyn Lakin, Eric Kriebel and Shawn Balcita searched the woods and brush for two hours before spotting the young black bear along a road.
