Construction Workers Find a Bear While Digging Into the Ground

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard

When you’re a construction worker, you have enough to worry about. Operating heavy machinery and often times dealing with extremely heavy objects in hazardous situations, the job is never safe.
 
On the other hand, who said being a construction worker would ever mean coming in contact with some of nature’s most dangerous wildlife?
 
Construction workers were reportedly digging into the ground in Bolu, Turkey during what was supposed to be a regular day or work, when some sudden loud roars could be heard coming from the source of the dug hole. Shortly after, a large paw could be seen moving inside the hole in the ground.
 


With a little further digging, it was revealed that a bear was hiding inside the underground dwelling. As you can probably imagine, it was a bit upset that its dwelling was being invaded, so the construction workers proceeded with caution before widening the hole so the bear could be let out.
 
In a few entanglements, the bear tried to go after the construction workers’ hydraulic drill, but without any success, the bear decided to take off running.
 
From the looks of its sprint, the bear was not harmed during the process.
 
Nevertheless, the bear was understandably aggravated from the sounds of the loud construction machinery and having its home broken into. The bear will now need to find a new place to live.
