RINGWOOD, NEW JERSEY- A bear cub rummaging for food in the trash got its head caught in a cookie jar and had to be rescued in a town in New Jersey near the New York border.

Authorities say the small cub found some crackers in the jar and as he tried to eat what remained, he pulled it over his head and it got stuck.

When people approached the cub, it got spooked and climbed a tree. Then it got stuck about 40-feet up.

The cub was tranquilized and brought down and firefighters carefully cut the jar off its head.
