Robert managed to tie the towrope to the barrel and then tied it to a tree to stop the bear rolling around in the yard. Then Robert called a vet. The vet tranquilized the bear and since the bear could choke at any second it was decided to immediately cut the container. Fortunately, Robert could cut the barrel without damaging the bearâ€™s skin. Having awakened from a tranquilizer, the bear got up and calmly went into the forest.
