Deputies in Kings Beach, California came to the rescue of "T-Shirt", the town's famous black bear, who got himself in to a bind while foraging for food in a trash dumpster.
Deputies for the Placer County Sheriff's Office jumped into action when they noticed T-Shirt couldn't extract himself from the trash bin after becoming stuck under a hinged lid. In the video you can see a deputy open up the lid and run away while T-shirt pulls himself out and runs in the other direction.
The black bear is known as T-Shirt to the locals because of the white bib he sports on his chest.
Neither the deputies or T-Shirt were hurt in the encounter.
