Protecting Your Dog From Bears

"Woman Attacked by Bear While Protecting Dog... a black bear and its two cubs had wandered into her yard and attempted to attack her dog Maggie. The 200-pound female bear chased the dog as it ran towards the house... The bear was euthanized and tested for rabies as a precaution, according to state officials. The cubs were deemed old enough to survive on their own and will be released into another area"

This is normal behavior for a mother bear with cubs. They aren't going to let another predator near them, whether it is your dog... or you.

If you live in bear country, then the responsibility lies with YOU to educate yourself about bear behaviors and take necessary precautions. It isn't the bear's fault for being a bear.

So, now a momma bear is dead and the cubs are being released into the wild earlier than would normally happen.

All wrong. All. Wrong.
