Winnie the Pooh would be pleased to know he’s not the only one to get himself into bear-y big trouble.

Wildlife workers in Thurmont, Maryland, used an electric hand saw to remove a metal milk can from a black bear’s head on Monday, according to The Associated Press. The 175 to 200-pound animal somehow got his noggin wedged in the can and the Department of Natural Resources was called on to help free the adult male, who was roaming in a rural location.

Spokeswoman Karis King told The AP, the bear was calm, but the workers tranquilized him for safety reasons before carefully removing the can.

After it was all over, the bear regained consciousness, lifted his head and walked into the nearby woods, King said.
