Black bear no match for 2 English bulldogs in Bow
On May 1, she was next door telling a neighbor that it was time to take down the bird feeders when she saw that Brutus was back.
Lola and Comma, her bulldogs, crashed through the farmer's porch that overlooks the back yard. The pair, who together weigh about 90 pounds, confronted the bear, who rose to full height on his hind legs.
While the actual bear incident was happening, she said, "It wasn't fun. It was really upsetting."
She thinks it's a reflection of how much people love dogs and wildlife: "It's nature voyeurism."
Plus, the story had a happy ending. "I want people to understand that my blessing is that the bear exercised some compassion and walked away," she said.
But she said, "These dogs don't move. They walk to the mailbox and they're done."
