Maybe the bear thought that there was something he could eat inside the bucket. Maybe there was something in the object. When he tried to lift his head, however, it got stuck. This is not what he thought would happen.
If only he knew that this would end up happening to him, he wouldn’t have reached for what was inside the bucket. The good news is that there are good people out there who didn’t want to see the bear suffering. It may have taken a few weeks, but it was finally free.
In the end, both the bear and the locals were happy. Isn’t it amazing how one bad situation can bring a community together?
