Alaska Woman Rescues Her Dog From Bear's Jaw
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Juneau, Alaska resident Brooke Collins looked up and saw a bear. Worse than that, she saw a bear carrying her dog in its mouth. The bear had grabbed her dachshund named Fudge. Ms. Collins says she didn't think. She just did what any self-respecting dog owner would do. She ran up and punched the bear in the face. The bear dropped the dog and ran away, and from now on, Ms. Collins plans to be more careful about letting out the dogs.
