    A family fishing in Wisconsin came across a bear swimming in a lake with large plastic bottle over it's head. A good outcome.

            I hope he doesn't drown now. That was his life preserver...

            Sad that people leave such trash around for them to get caught up in to start with. If everyone would make a promise to take more trash out of the camp grounds, boat ramps and yes, even the woods then they carried in, it would help tremendously. Hard to find virgin woods anymore where humans haven't trash up everything.

            Thanks for posting a good feeling story. Heaven knows the world sure can use such a video these days...

                      Yes and they work even better for staying under for long periods of time, if they use a straw with it too...
