GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado bed and breakfast owner armed with just a length of rope helped save a black bear with a giant plastic container stuck on its head.

Jim Hawkins got his lasso around the animal’s midsection on the first throw.

He said Thursday that he and the bear “did a rodeo thing for a while” before the animal figured out that Hawkins was the reason it couldn’t run away.

That’s when the bear went after Hawkins, leaving him with scrapes.
