THE LATEST EXAMPLE OF WHY WE MUST STOP USING PLASTIC: In this video a Wisconsin family rescues a young bear after it got a plastic cheese ball container stuck on its head! Tricia Hurt, her husband Brian, and their son Brady were out fishing on Marsh-Miller Lake on Sunday when they came across the distressed black bear. "We knew that if we didn't do something, we are pretty sure it would not have made it to shore," Tricia Hurt told CNN. "It was really huffing and puffing, my husband said." The family came up behind the bear, and Brian pulled on the tub but lost his grip — but he realized the bear's ear was loose. They looped the boat back around, and after a final tug the bear was free and swam safely to shore! Please share this video with your followers and tag people, celebrities and influencers who need to see it too because this poor bear would’ve drowned if this family wasn’t there and sadly too many animals aren’t as lucky as plastic kills over 1 million animals every year and it’s only getting worse each year since plastic takes dozens or even hundreds of years to decompose, so every piece can kill many animals over time! WE MUST MAKE EVERYONE AWARE ABOUT THIS URGENT CRISIS, PLEASE SHARE THIS AND HELP US SPREAD AWARENESS TO END PLASTIC POLLUTION TO SAVE OUR PLANET’S WILDLIFE BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!

After spending a day fishing on Marsh-Miller Lake, Tricia Hurt, her husband Brian, and their son Brady were headed back to the boat landing when they noticed something in the water.

At first, they thought it was a dog … but as they got closer they realized it was a distressed young bear.

Apparently, the bear got hungry and got stuck in a plastic container while it was searching for food.

The young black bear was swimming across the lake … struggling to breathe.

The family knew if they didn’t do something the bear wouldn’t have been able to make it to land.

Luckily — after several attempts by the family of heroes — Brian managed to grab the plastic container and remove it from the bear’s head and the cute animal was able to swim safely to shore.

Tricia posted the video on Facebook and got overwhelmed by the response as the video went viral.

This was a happy ending but sadly, too many animals aren’t as lucky because plastic kills over one million animals every year and it’s only getting worse.

Plastic takes dozens or even hundreds of years to decompose, so every piece can kill many animals over time!
