Construction workers probably find lots of things when they're on the job digging. Forgotten toys, old coins, maybe even some cool fossils. But one thing they probably do not expect to find is A BEAR THAT IS ALIVE. That's exactly what happened when a team of men in Bolu, Turkey who were on the job working on a septic tank.

In the video, you can see the workers drilling away at a large concrete structure, which is evidently the septic tank that trapped the bear. Thought it's hard to tell whether or not they were digging the bear out intentionally or if they stumbled across him while on site, one this is for certain: that bear was mad. I would be too, if I was suddenly forced to go into hibernation in a very smelly place.

According to United Press International, the bear had fallen into the septic tank accidentally, while chasing chickens on a farm in Ericek. The video was actually captured in 2015, but was only uploaded to YouTube recently.

As the robotic arm of the truck pokes through the concrete, you can see the very upset bear make several attempts to climb out of the hole. Eventually, they're able to make a big enough hole that the bear can climb out and run off into the woods. Be free big fella.
