Oh, bother!

The Greater Sudbury Police had to think, think, think of a solution when a real-life "Winnie the Pooh" popped its head in a plastic jar and couldn't shake it off in the Lively area on Sunday, said a news release.

Officers found the black bear with its head in a container normally used to store bird seed walking into a number of objects including a police car.

Eventually, officials with Ontario's Ministry of Natural Resources attended the scene and the bear was tranquilized using a pole. The jar had to be cut off the bear's head and the animal will now be relocated.

This is hardly the first time that a black bear has managed to attract attention for a bizarre incident in Canada.

Last October, a bear cub was tranquilized after climbing down from a hydro pole in Lumby, B.C.

In June, a black bear was filmed opening a car door in Maple Ridge, B.C.
