ERICEK, Turkey, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Construction workers in Turkey used heavy equipment to punch a hole in the side of a septic tank and free a disgruntled bear that somehow became trapped inside.

A video posted to YouTube by user Vitaly Petrukhin shows the construction workers coming to the rescue of the bear after it apparently fell into the concrete septic tank while chasing chickens on a farm in Ericek.

The video shows the workers using a digger to reach the bottom of the tank and a hydraulic hammer to punch a hole through the concrete.

The dissatisfied and excrement-covered bear pokes its head out from the hole and helps to dig itself to freedom and run off into the nearby woods.

The uploader said the incident took place in September 2015, but was only posted to YouTube this past Saturday.
