FRENCHTOWN, Mont. — Police say a Montana woman used an unlikely weapon to fend off a charging bear — a zucchini.
Missoula County Sheriff's Lt. Rich Maricelli says a 200-pound black bear attacked the woman's 12-year-old collie just after midnight Wednesday on the back porch of her home about 15 miles west of Missoula.
When the woman, whom police did not name, screamed to draw the bear's attention, it charged her and swiped at her leg.
Maricelli says the woman jumped back into the doorway and reached for the nearest object on her kitchen counter — a 12-inch zucchini from her garden.
The woman flung the vegetable at the bear, striking it on top of the head and causing it to flee.
Maricelli says the woman did not need medical attention. Wildlife officials were trying to locate the bear on Thursday.


This may be insensitive on my part, but I couldn't help it, I got a chuckle out of this. Who would have thought a zucchini as a form of weapon. She's real lucky though. Anyways, glad the lady is fine...but I wonder if her dog is okay?

A zucchini? Didnt you know that china used those in the war?

Those things are fricking hard. I once had a truckload of them dumped on me. I was in the hospitol D:

if I fought a bear i would punch its nose, that would either hurt it enough to make it go away or piss it off.

So the next time I go camping and find myself about to get attacked by a bear, I shall bring zucchini.
