Tough Guy

Henry Ostrander, 66, is one tough dude. Early on Wednesday June 30 Henry awoke to hear Esmerelda, his goat, 'scream' in distress. He hurried outside in his nightshirt to find a black bear attacking the goat. What Henry did next is nothing short of amazing, he ran up to the 300 pound bear and punched it in the snout. The bear was apparently stunned by the blow and ran off, climbing a tree. The goat was rescued and is doing fine. The bear, on the other hand, is not so good. It was later shot and killed while foraging in a trash can.

IIRC my American history correctly, this dude counted coup on a bear with his bare (no pun here DF) hand and that makes him one tall walking dude among the people. MW want'a back me up on this?

true, also. I've heard that is also a last-second defense resort against an attacking shark. I've just never been adventuresome enough to get into a conflict with either sharks or bears to try it out. Maybe that's why I'm still here. Kudos to the old guy!

Wowie! This is one of the best things I think I ever had the pleasure of reading... and I read way too much.

Feel bad for the bear - everybody gotta eat.
