Conservation officers rescue bear cub from oil jug

Cub was found near Elephant Hill

There have been a lot of sad animal stories this fire season but on Tuesday evening, conservation officers brightened the day for one bear cub.

Literally, as the black bear cub, found near Elephant Hill, had an oil container stuck firmly on its head.

Conservation officers successfully removed the creative headwear and sent the little cub on its way.
