A bear has managed to get stuck in a factory ceiling in Virginia, USA.
The bear was stuck 7m off the ground in the steel beams above the factory floor. It is unknown how the bear ended up in the position as there are no nearby stairs or ladders.
Employees at the Volvo manufacturing plant were told to stay in the cafeteria during the bear’s evacuation.
Biologists used a “chemical immobilization dart” to knock out the bear and then used the plant’s heavy equipment including a forklift to bring the bear down.
The bear, found to be unharmed, was taken to “a suitable site for release.”
