Digging Workmen Find Bear Stuck In Concrete Pit

While working on a construction site in Turkey, workers were shocked when they witnessed a bear emerging out of a hole while they were digging at a site on a chicken farm.   

 A video was captured of the incredible event and shows how things happened. The laborers were in the midst of digging up a hole using an excavator when they heard a roar. They use the machine to smash the ground to help free the brown bear that’s trapped underneath. After a few minutes, the bear’s paw comes out and the poor animal attempts to dig his way out of the pit.


The bear is seen aggressively pawing at the ground and trying to dig his way out of the pit. After a bit of effort, the bear is halfway out of the hole. As he gets closer to freedom, the crane comes down and it sounds like a jackhammer is used to break down more of the dirt wall. Meanwhile, the laborers are heard yelling in another language.

At this point, all you can do is hope that the bear becomes successful in his mission. The bear inches out of the hole and after quite the struggle, it finally manages to free himself from the depths of the chicken cave. The bear lets out a victorious roar and makes a great escape.

Now that the bear is finally out of the hole, he makes a run for it and heads back out and into the forest. Let this be a lesson to him: Don’t go exploring in strange areas.

 The event took place in a chicken farm near Bolu and locals believe that the bear became trapped after it had climbed into the pit to feed on the chicken carcasses that were thrown down the hole. “In the morning when a worker took the dead chickens into the pit, at that moment came a roaring sound,” local resident Mehmet Yildiz tells the Daily Mirror.

According to Mirror, the video was originally posted in 2015 and has been shared and viewed over 1.5 million times since re-surfacing on Monday, November 28th, 2016.
