It seems as though Winnie-the-Pooh wasn’t just a fairy-tale, as a bear in Russia’s Far East has been repeating some of the antics portrayed by the cartoon favorite. The bear cub got stuck in a window after having had a little too much to eat.
While animals getting their heads stuck in jars is nothing new, bears getting obstructed trying to exit through a window and flee the scene of a crime certainly is.
A brown bear broke into a house in Kamchatka this week and while the owners were out, the animal apparently helped itself to more than just a little lunch.
He ate, and ate… and ate… and ate… in the kitchen…
When the homeowners returned, the bear probably thought, "I must be going now," and — standing on a stove by a window, tried to exit through a small window. But just like in Rabbit's house, the bear's bottom had become a little too fat to fit through, and… it became stuck, with its head on the outside, and paws dangling inside.
Unlike the helpful Rabbit, the homeowners didn't oblige to give their guest that extra little bit of help it needed. Giving the bear a push was the last thing on their minds as they stood laughing and filmed the poor cub on their mobile phones.
"It all comes of not having front doors big enough,” the bear was probably thinking, though it did eventually manage to push itself through the window and away to safety.
