Hey, who remembers this story about the bear with his head stuck in a cookie jar from yesterday?

Well, my mom volunteers at a wildlife rehab facility (that will go unnamed by request), and she's visiting me for the holiday. She drove up after her shift today, and casually starts telling me "well, we got another bear cub [fourth this year] to look after temporarily." I didn't think anything of it, until she mentioned "...it was on our local news, they found him with a cookie jar on his head." Holy shit! My mom helped take care of the famous bear!

The reasons for anonymity of the shelter are somewhat complex, but it has to do with controversy over black bears in NJ and things of that nature. Ha! Nature! Get it???
