If dogs issued medals for bravery, this woman would get top honors: Brooke Collins, of Juneau, Alaska, took on a black bear—and won—to save the life of her beloved Dachshund.
Collins heard little Fudge barking hysterically in her yard and discovered the bear trying to make a snack out of her weiner dog. Her protective instincts took over and, without thinking, Collins ran up to the bear, punched it in the face, and scooped up Fudge.
The bear took off, and Fudge is recovering at home.
Collins admits that what she did was “stupid,” but she was caught up in fear for her dog’s life.
“I wasn’t in my right mind at the moment but I would never think of doing it again,” she told the Juneau Empire.
Would you do the same thing? Have you ever done something crazy to rescue your pup?
