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

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!
