"So I pulled up alongside him, and he said there was a black bear walking around with a can stuck on his head," he said.
Rallo told KTUU that the bear appeared to have a good temperament despite the surrounding traffic and the large can on its head.
"It was a little strange. He was pretty stressed and he didn't seem to be bothered by any of it, cars or noise or anything like that," he said.
After filming a brief video of the bear, Rallo contacted the Alaska Department of Fish and Game who informed him they were on their way to tranquilize the bear and said he considered attempting to free the bear himself.
"I was tempted to take the can and just jerk it off its head myself, but I had second thoughts about that because I figured he might look at me and figure I'm responsible and attack me," he said.
Alaska Department of Fish and Game officers eventually arrived on the scene and were able to cut the bear out of the can after having it tranquilized and said the bear seemed to be largely unharmed.
"It seemed in fairly good shape, so it must not have had the can on its head for a really long time," Fish and Game assistant area biologist Jeff Wells said.
