Zucchini-Wielding Woman Frightens Bear
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
The harvest came just in time for a Montana woman. She discovered a black bear attacking her dog. She screamed to divert the bear's attention, which worked too well, since the bear charged at her. The woman jumped in her house and found a weapon. Right there on the kitchen counter was a zucchini from her garden. She threw it and bopped the bear on the head. Apparently the bear doesn't like zucchini, because it turned around and fled.
