RINGWOOD, N.J. (AP) - A police detective in New Jersey has used a folding knife to help a bear cub escape from a net it was trapped in.

The police union in Ringwood posted a video to Instagram showing Det. Joe Longo freeing the bear from the netting of a batting cage on Tuesday.

The bear ran off into the woods after Longo freed it.

The union used the video to remind people to take sports nets down when they’re not in use as animals sometimes become entangled in them and die.
