A female black bear cub was caught Tuesday morning with her head stuck in a plastic tub of protein powder.
Colorado Springs police found the bear just after 5 a.m. at 14th and Kiowa streets. Officers attempted to remove the bottle but were unsuccessful, police said.
The officers put the cub in the back of a patrol car and took her to a fire station, police said.
A Colorado Parks and Wildlife officer sedated the bear, and firefighters used rescue tools to un- stick the cub from the tub.
She was tagged and released, police said.
