This 64-year-old woman from Maine is a bad ass! She was bitten by a black bear after she punched it in the nose in an effort to protect her dog. After hearing her dog barking in the backyard, she saw a black bear chasing it. First, she tried to scare the bear but it didn’t leave and then the bear fought back and the woman received puncture wounds to her hand and wrist, but was able to fend off the animal, and save her dog. She was treated and released from a New Hampshire hospital. Wildlife officials are reminding people that bear attacks are rare, especially in Maine.
