It’s apparently Hero Dog Day on the blog because here’s our second amazing amazing story of the day. Steve Kirchbaum and his dog, Henry, were hiking in West Virginia last week when they had the misfortune to run into a mama bear with cubs. As most folks know, this is an incredibly dangerous situation, and the 250-pound bear leaped into action to protect her cubs. The bear knocked Kirchbaum to the ground and sank her teeth into his leg.
But Henry wasn’t going to stand for that: “That’s when Henry sprang into the action, coming to his rescue and attacking the bear. That gave Kirchbaum just enough time to pick up a rock and fight the angry mama bear off.”
Way to go, Henry!
