Bear attacks dog....man jumps on bear's back and stabs it to death

    Guy and his dog are on a canoe trip in Northern Ontario when this happens


    As Mr. Tilley unsheathed his Buck hunting knife, the dog sprang in front of his master, turned sideways and stood its ground. The bear lunged forward, plunging its fangs into the pit bull's white hide.

    Mr. Tilley said his fear turned to rage.

    "All I could see was my beloved canine friend getting chomped on, and the immediate thought was: 'You're not going to kill my dog!' "

    Mr. Tilley said he jumped on the bear's back, clutching it with his left hand, while with his right hand he thrust the six-inch blade into its throat. The knife slid in to the hilt. The bear loosened its grip on the dog.

    And this guy's 55. Another feather in the cap for us old guys.

    Some of the readers' comments are interesting.

    A number maintain that the dog was the reason for the bear attack and that if the guy had been alone, the bear would probably have ignored him.

    Also this:

    w k from Canada writes: Quote: 'While it is illegal to kill a black bear without a permit, Ms. Kowalski (from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources) said Mr. Tilley will probably not be charged because he acted in self-defence.' End of Quote. Just another chairwarming, paperpushing bureaucrat doing her job on behalf of ordinary Canadians.
