(NBC News) A bear cub is recovering in New Jersey this morning, after falling victim to temptation, and getting into all kinds of trouble.
Somebody in Ringwood put a cookie jar in the trash last Friday.
The cub just couldn't resist -- and got its head stuck in the jar.
Then it got stuck about 40 feet up a tree, with the jar still on its head.
After tranquilizing the bear, rescuers brought it down and carefully cut the jar off. The bear is now recovering at an animal rehabilitation center.
