Woman Fights Off Bear with Zucchini

A bear attacked a dog in Frenchtown, Montana. The dog’s owner fended off the bear using a zucchini:

When the woman, whom police did not name, tried to separate the animals, the bear bit her in the leg.

Maricelli says the woman reached for the nearest object at hand on the porch’s railing — a large zucchini that she had harvested from her garden.

The woman flung the vegetable at the bear, striking it and forcing it to flee.
