image for Florida jar survives 3 days with bear on head
A brown bear that didn't fall on a jar.

A Florida plastic jar survived three days with a bear on its head.

The jar or bottle, believed to have once contained milk or some other liquid, was minding its own business when suddenly a black bear fell on it. Although the jar attempted to struggle, its limb deficiency handicapped its efforts and therefore the bear remained on the jar for several days until a nice man removed it.

The jar, affectionately known as Bearhead in the small community in the Ocala National Forest where it lived, was unable to store liquids for three days, owing to the presence of the bear, and came close to cracking under the weight of the animal. It was noted that the jar had no lid, since the presence of a lid may have averted the unfortunate accident.

Jars are often discarded in the forest by inconsiderate visitors, who do not realise exactly how dangerous it is to leave a jar lying around.

A park warden said "It's very unusual for a jar to have a bear on it. Usually, it's the other way around."

Both jar and bear are said to be recovering satisfactorily from what was certainly a frightening ordeal.
