JUNEAU, Alaska – Black bears in residential neighborhoods aren't exactly unheard of in Juneau. While many people stay inside when bears are about, one local woman says she had a different instinct when she saw her dog was in trouble.
It started out as a typical evening for 22-year-old Brooke Collins. She let her dogs out as usual but this time, she said there was a black bear outside who took hold of her dachshund Fudge.
She said she feared for her pet's life and, in an instant, ran over and punched the bear right in the face to make it let go.
Hopefully next time she'll have time to scribble out a suicide note first.
