This footage shows the moment stunned workers made a shocking find while investigating a deep "roaring" coming from beneath the ground in a forest. After a few minutes of frantic digging, one worker lets out a cry as a giant paw emerges from a hole.
A huge brown bear then uses its strength to dig itself out, tumbling backwards a few times before finally managing to drag its body up.
The footage is believed to have been captured close to a chicken farm near Bolu in Turkey.
The confused bear scampers off into the trees uninjured - except perhaps for a sore head.
