    A 120-pound black bear stuck its head into a milk can, and oops! was unable to pull it out.

    The bear was helped out after playing Winnie-the-Pooh* for 6 hours.

    *Made a similar thing with a jar of honey, I think.

    Poor bear. Nice that it had a happy ending.

    No no no; Pooh did not, let me explain. We needed to catch this heffalump, so we dug a deep pit and put in that jar of hunny as bait. But when Pooh came to check upon the trap the jar was empty, except for a little hunny still at the bottom. Luckily, Piglet had a grandfather called Trespassers William, or didn't that help? Anyway Pooh ended up with a big headache.
