Family saves bear swimming with head stuck in bin

BLOOMER, Wisconsin (AP) – A Wisconsin family helped save a young bear that was struggling to breathe while swimming in a lake with its head caught in a plastic food container. Tricia and Brian Hurt and their son, Brady, were fishing at Marsh Miller Lake in western Wisconsin’s Chippewa County when they came across what they first thought was a swimming dog. They soon realised, though, that it was a young bear with a clear plastic cheese ball container stuck on its head.  More details in Thursday’s Borneo Bulletin
