2016 was a pretty bad news year for bears — that is, until you meet this cross bear stuck in a Turkish septic tank.
The animal’s dramatic (and filthy) escape was filmed in Bolu, Turkey, in September 2015. Apparently, the bear was snacking on some local chickens when it accidentally fell into the tank and had to be freed with a hammer attached to an excavator.
The bear, covered in well, you know, what septic tanks are filled with, was made much, much angrier by the hammering, and furiously attacks the excavator before fleeing into the nearby woods.
We totally get it, the ordeal must have been bear-y embarrassing for him.
