Bear with bucket stuck on his head finally free

(Source: CNN) (Source: CNN)

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

A fatal accident on I-10 eastbound near Vinton this morning. You can look for that story at noon, and read more HERE.

A bug that let hackers gain access to iCloud accounts has been fixed. The software error allowed hackers to access nude photos of celebrities.

Also today, a family says their dog is a hero. It all started when some kids stepped on a bee hive, and the dog saved the life of an eight-year-old boy! More on that story HERE.

Meanwhile, good news for a black bear who has been walking around with a bucket on its head for two months. Wildlife officials couldn't help the bear, but a group of people went into action and we'll show you the result. You can also read more about it HERE.

Plus, the Army's new strict tattoo policy may already need revising. That new rule is forcing about one in five recruits in one city to give up their military dreams.

Ben tells me we can expect widely scattered, mainly afternoon showers and storms. The actual chance of rain will remain at 40 percent. Can we expect more of the same as the week wears on? A tropical storm emerged overnight, but what will happen with Dolly? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answers. You can also check out the latest weather conditions HERE.

Remember, if you're away from the TV watch us live at http://bit.ly/1lCk0p5 or through the KPLC News and Weather Apps for Apple or Android devices.

Have a great day everyone!
