(KTLA) – California firefighters rescued a bear that became trapped in land behind Six Flags Magic Mountain last week, authorities said.

The bear wandered the grounds of the Valencia amusement park on May 5 and somehow got stuck between two cargo trailers, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

A team from the fire department arrived on the scene, accompanied by officers from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and animal control.

“They worked diligently and patiently over the next several hours to free the bear,” the man said. The fire department said in a press release.
