A video of a bear being rescued from a septic tank in Bolu, Turkey, has surfaced online, showing the fury that rises when Mother Nature gets trapped.
In the clip, construction workers can be seen inspecting, then later destroying what appears to be a concrete septic tank. After breaking a hole in the side of the tank, an extremely angry bear starts to claw its way out, and eventually emerges once the hole is large enough.
Though The Daily Mail and Metro reported the story to say that the construction workers stumbled upon the bear, it’s more likely that this was actually an effort to save the bear. The video even opens with a man inspecting the inside of the tank from the top.
According to the clip’s YouTube description, the incident occurred in September of 2015. The bear is believed to have been feeding on some farm chickens when it accidentally fell into the septic tank and was unable to get out.
Rescuers then partially dug out the tank and used a hammer attached to an excavator to bust a hole through the side of the tank to free the bear.
The bear was clearly not pleased with all of the hammering.
After digging itself out the rest of the way, the bear was able to safely escape to the nearby woods without further incident.
