PARKER, Pennsylvania — A group of friends has tracked down and helped to save a western Pennsylvania bear that got its head stuck in a bucket-like contraption.

The group posted cellphone video to the Facebook page titled "Save the 'Bucket Bear'" (http://on.fb.me/1rcTt3h ) after they were able to track down the bear and subdue it over the weekend.

Samantha Eigenbrod recorded the rescue on her cellphone. The bear's head wasn't really stuck in a bucket, but rather in a device related to an automobile air bag that got stuck on the bear's head. The animal was able to breathe by chewing a hole in the device.

Eigenbrod's friends tackled the bear and took about 30 to 40 minutes to cut off the device with a hack saw. The bear then ran away, apparently unharmed.
