A video that is going viral out of Wisconsin shows a bear swimming in a lake with a plastic jar stuck on its head. 

The video, shared by Tricia Hurt on Facebook, shows her family on boat on Marsh-Miller Lake when they come upon a bear swimming with the jar over its head. 

They circle the bear a couple of times before finally getting into position for the man to quickly grab the jug and pull it off the bear's head. 

"Never dreamt we would ever do this in our life time. Out on Marshmiller Lake yesterday with Brian Hurt and Brady Hurt when we spotted this poor bear. He made it to shore after all that," Tricia Hurt said. 

The video has more than 560,000 views as of this writing. Marsh-Miller Lake is located about 20 miles north of Eau Claire in Chippewa County.
