(WKOW) -- A northern Wisconsin family went out of its way over the weekend to rescue a bear whose head was stuck inside a large plastic container.

Tricia, Brian and Brady Hurt were fishing on Marsh-Miller Lake north of Chippewa Falls when they came across the bear paddling across the lake.

It took them a few tries, but Brady was able to meneuver the boat and Brian was able to reach over and pluck the container off the bear's head.

The bear then paddled aways safely.

Tricia recorded the event and shared it to her Facebook page, which now has thousands of views.
