ROSEAU, Minn. – The Minnesota DNR found itself in an odd situation last week.
The DNR said a 150-pound black male bear got its head stuck in a 10-gallon milk jug last week northwest of Roseau.
The DNR said it drilled holes in the jug so the bear could breathe then used cooking oil to try to slide it off the bear’s head.
After that didn’t work, the Roseau Fire Department was brought in and some special equipment helped free the bear.
