Bear Survives 4 Weeks With Pickle Jar On Head


www.wsbtv.com

Georgia wildlife workers are puzzled as to how a black bear with its head stuck in a plastic pickle jar survived for weeks without water or food.

Officials with the Department of Natural Resources said they started receiving calls about the bear in early June, but that it wasn’t until July when wildlife workers were able to locate the bear, tranquilize it and remove the plastic jar.

Not really a conspiracy here, except how the bear survived without water, we all know bears can go without food for long periods, I suppose when they hybernate that they also go without water, never heard of them waking up to drink, that same instinct may have worked for him!

Just wanted to post something on the lighter side, no gloom and doom here, the bear made it and is now wandering the hills of Ga, maybe I will run into him someday on a trail or camping, you never know! LOL!

Bears Rule!

Lol

I hope you do go on to meet this amazing bear someday! What a happy ending though, the bear survived to eat pickles another day.

That bear was a covert NASA agent testing out its new Bear atmospheric breathing apparatus for SpaceB.E.A.R(Space Bear Exploration and Recognisance).

Don't let this MSM story lead you astray, it is typical dis-info aimed at covering up this specialised bear unit. Plastic picklejar indeed!. The Bear survived because it was a self contained enviroment(hmmm umm pickle jar) that provided food and supplements(honey) to the bear, that is why it survived.

Bears Rule.

Black bears have periods of sleep and wakefulness but can go all winter without eating, drinking, urinating, or defecating.

That's when they have much less body movement and energy consumption though. He was probably just really lucky, used the water in his body, and super dehydrated.

Oh I knew it couldn't be as simple as it looked, no bears ever get caught during this operation, something terrible must have happened to expose this one!

He was lucky that is for sure, other than no water, he wandered into neighborhoods and was spotted by numerous people, I am suprised it didn't get shot! We had one wander into the downtown area, it got hit by a car and that didn't kill it, but an idiot officer did, he shot it several times until it was gone. Dummarse.

The bear is just another example of many different creatures who choose to not give up and choose to survive against seemingly unsurmountable odds. Kudos to the bear!!

Does anyone else have a mental image of Winnie the Pooh stuck in a jar of honey?

I won't actually believe this story until there's an out of focus amateur video, black and white blurry photos, or "a everyday man" that encountered the bear selling a book or giving lectures. OBAMA PUT THE JAR ON THE BEAR'S HEADS!!!! Liberals fear the bear because the voters love him. The bear abducted me and placed a radio transmitter in my forehead. The bear and the Trilaterial commision are working with the UN and WHO to bring down the population of the earth to 500 million. The bear's calendar ends on 2012 which means the world will end.

That should sufficiently make this a ATS story


Bears Rule

That would be quite a sight I'd say.. To see a bear wandering around for 4 weeks with a pickle bottle stuck on it's head.

Sadly, when I worked for the Humane Society here several years ago, it was very common that animals would be brought in with cans, bottles, ect, stuck on their little heads and necks. Not just dogs or cats either, a deer with a toy ring stuck around it's neck, a ferret stuck in a bean can, an owl with raw cotton string around it's wings and body, just to name a few. It always made me think that we don't think about them enough, what dangers we impose on them.

Thanks, i like a good story on the lighter side every now and then, especially with a good ending it's refreshing.

Maybe the pickle jar had some pickles and juice left in it when he first got a hold of it and that helped him survive.

This Bear may have gone Rogue. He may have even snapped under the intense pressure of being an elite member of SpaceB.E.A.R, similar to Matt Damon' character in the Bourne Identity. Everyone know how dangerous rogue bears are. A Rougue Bear that thinks he is Matt Damon may be even more dangerous.

I believe we may see a little more on this story in the MSM as interest spreads.
Perhaps C2C will have him on. "Bear goes rogue on Top secret NASA project".
Steven Bassett with "Disclosure Bear". Or even Entertainment Tonight with "Matt Damon star as a Rogue Bear agent in the Bear Identity. Who knows? Time Will Tell.

Did someone confuse the number 4 with "for" as in..
"plastic pickle jar survived for weeks without water or food."?
If not, then how did they know for sure that the bear was stuck in it for 4 weeks? Also why didn't someone help the bear if they knew about it for that long?!?

I think the story writer confused that part

Poor bear, I know that type of thing happens a lot. I'm glad the bear lived, but then I'm not a christian.

The simplest answer is usually the correct one. In this case the pickle jar collected enough water from rain to keep the bear alive.
