Bear attacked by zucchini

Post  WardinWake on 9/25/2010, 10:50 am

Datelline, Frenchtown, Mont. (AP) A Montana woman fended off a charging bear on her back porch early Thursday by using the first weapon she could reach - a zucchini.

The woman was stirred after midnight by a tussle in the backyard of her home near Frenchtown, Missoula County Sheriff's Lt. Rich Maricelli said. She went to investigate and found a 300-pound black bear attacking one of her two dogs, a 13 year-old collie.

The woman stood at her back door and screamed to divert the bear's attentions. She told police the bear then charged her.

The bear took a swipe at her with its paw and tore her jeans. The woman jumped back and grasped the nearest object on her kitchen counter inside the doorway - a 12 inch long zucchini she had harvested earlier from her garden.

She flung the zucchini at the bear from a distance she estimated to be 3 feet. The vegetable bopped the bruin on the top of its head and the animal fled, Maricelli said.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.
