(CNN) – In Pennsylvania, a black bear was dubbed the “bucket bear” after a run-in with a semi-air bag, and it was caught on video

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.
