An American resident of the city of Oviedo, Florida, rushed at the bear, who grabbed his dog and rescued pet. About it reports UPI.
Bear with a pair of yearling cubs appeared near the house of David Fulgum (David Fulghum) early in the morning when he was about to leave for work. The man wanted to make sure that the animals are gone, and opened the door. In the slot immediately popped his dog named alligator (Gator), which he started after the death of his son. A moment later, the dog was in the jaws of one of the bears.
Fulghum claims that, seeing this, jumped on the fly and hit the predator with both feet. According to him, it was an instinctive reaction. “The bear turned around, stood up on his hind legs, and then jumped back on all four,” he says. After this, the animals ran into the woods, and the man with the pet at the hands disappeared in the house.
To save Alligator, needed urgent surgery, for which Fulgum paid 5.7 thousand dollars (about 370 thousand rubles). Money for treatment of the dog lent his employer.
Florida is home to Florida black bears, also found in the States of Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. The average weight of an adult male is 140 pounds, length — from 120 to 180 centimeters. There are larger specimens.
In April it was reported that the family of an American city Nederland, Colorado, rescued a dog from attacking her Cougars. They tried shouting and knocks ward off the beast. When a Cougar raised his head, the dog managed to escape. The pet left a few wounds, but they were all harmless.
