“A 22-year-old Alaska woman said she punched a black bear in the face to save her small dog from being carried off and possibly eaten. Juneau resident Brooke Collins said she hit the bear Sunday night to save the life of her dachshund, Fudge. She said she discovered the bear crouched down, clutching Fudge in its paws and biting the back of the dog’s neck. “It had her kind of like when they eat salmon,” Collins said Wednesday. “I was freaking out. I was screaming at it. My dog was screaming. I ran up to it… I just punched it right in the snout and it let go.” Collins said her boyfriend then scared the bear away. “I think it was more startled than anything,” she said. Collins, a hairdresser who has lived in Juneau most of her life, said she is accustomed to bears and knows how to take precautions around them. She also knew about this particular bear before Sunday’s attack because it has been hanging around the neighborhood. In this case, however, Fudge darted out the door before anyone checked the vicinity, she said. The dog, an older female, was not seriously hurt in the attack, but Collins said she is tending to the animal’s wounds and keeping her inside for now. Collins said she is also taking other precautions with her second dog.” w/ photoThe difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
#2 Cow Gets Stuck On Safety Barrier09-03-2011, 09:44 PMCow Gets Stuck On Safety Barrier

“A kooky cow trying to avoid traffic found itself in a pickle after becoming stuck on a roadside safety barrier. The animal was stalking the roads in the Italian mountain village of Montecorvino Rovella-Salerno when it decided to head toward greener pastures. But, misjudging the height of the railing as it took a leap, the cow’s front and hind legs became separated by the safety rail – which is normally supposed to keep cars from crashing down the mountainside. Local mechanic and amateur photographer Roberto Marano was driving towards the village when he spotted the bonkers bessie – and took a snap to show his family and friends. Luckily the resourceful bovine managed to wriggle free without the need for human intervention and carried on grazing in the forest.” w/ photo

Wow, those women in Alaska are tough. I can identify, because if anything bothered our dogs, they'd best beware. It's that mother bear instinct (pardon the pun).
That must have been one startled bear. I hope they find it, because something like that is a menace. It clearly has no fear of humans or little yapping wiener dogs.
