RICE LAKE, Wis. — The video of a western Wisconsin logger who saved a black bear who got its head stuck in an old milk can is getting hundreds of thousands of YouTube hits.

Garrett Smith used the grappling hooks on his logging machine to free the struggling bear after spotting it in a cornfield while he was logging last month on a farm near Rice Lake. After consulting with the landowner who videotaped the rescue, Smith drove his machine out in the field. After a few attempts, he got its hooks around the milk can. The bear pulled his head out and bolted for the woods.

Smith figures there was something in the milk can that the bear was after.
