COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado Springs police say a black bear cub that got its head stuck in a plastic container that holds protein powder got a ride in a patrol car to a fire station, where firefighters removed the jug with rescue tools.

The Gazette reports (https://goo.gl/zoDfKL ) police found the female bear early Tuesday morning and were unable to remove the container. They loaded the bear into the backseat of their patrol car and headed to a nearby fire station.

A Colorado Parks and Wildlife officer sedated the bear before firefighters removed the container.

The bear was tagged and released in hopes it will be reunited with its mother.
