It's Winnie the polar bear! Four-month-old cub recreates Pooh Bear's honey jar scene by getting stuck in blue bucket

By Daily Mail Reporter

Feeling blue: Augo the polar bear gets stuck inside his favourite blue bucket, just like Winnie the Pooh became stuck inside a jar of honey in one of the most memorable scenes from the books and films

It might not be a pot of honey, but Augo the polar bear looks just like Winnie the Pooh as he gets his head stuck in a blue bucket.

The four-month-old cub stunned zoo keepers when he started to play with the blue bucket for hours on end.

But he has become attached to it in more than one way - he keeps getting his head stuck inside then falling over.

Augo's antics have amused hundreds of visitors who have been flocking to see the tiny bear at the Aalborg Zoo in Denmark.

He pokes his head in the container and attempts to stand on two legs, before, inevitably, falling over - all with caring mother Malik looking on.

Get me out of here! After stumbling around for a few moments with his head stuck, Augo the bear tries to remove the plastic bucket by using a large rock

The startled young bear then returns to the safety of his protective mum. But before long, he is playing with his favourite bucket again, and it's not long before he's stuck again.

Augo's playful fun bears a striking resemblance to the scenes from children's book Winnie the Pooh.

Winnie, or 'Pooh Bear' as he is affectionately known, spends hours eating his favourite honey when he gets his head stuck in the jar.

Safe and well: Augo returns the comfort of his mother, Malik, who often looks on as her young cub falls about with the bucket on his head at the Aalborg Zoo in Denmark

The adorable scenes come as the most recent film version of the Winnie the Pooh story was released in the UK last Friday on April 15.

Author A.A. Milne created the fictional bear in 1926 for a series of books before it was adapted for film in the 1960s.
