A young bear cub got into a little jam when he went for the last morsels in a giant plastic bucket of cheese puffs. 

This drama played out on Marshmiller Lake in Northern Wisconsin.

A family out fishing in the early morning hours came across a bear swimming in the lake, which isn't unusual, but this one had a jar on his head.

The folks decided to help the bear out and take the jar off his big old head, but the bear didn't think that was a good idea, so he tried to avoid them.

They finally got close enough to get the jar off, and the bear swam away happy, but probably confused as the thing that scared him the most (a loud boat)  was the thing that freed him.

Keep on swimming, you big dumb bear!
