Bear no match for zuc­chini

Los Angeles Times - - The Nation - — times wire re­ports

Po­lice say a woman fended off a bear with an un­likely weapon — a zuc­chini.

Sher­iff’s Lt. Rich Mari­celli said a 200-pound black bear at­tacked one of the woman’s dogs at her home west of Mis­soula, Mont.. The woman, whom po­lice did not name, kicked the bear, and it tried to fol­low her into her house.

Mari­celli said she reached for the near­est ob­ject, a 12-inch zuc­chini. She threw it at the bear, strik­ing it on the head and caus­ing it to flee. The woman suf­fered mi­nor scratches and one of her dogs was wounded.
