Emily Wagner was relaxing in her backyard in Long Valley, New Jersey, with her three-year-old daughter. A bear that was often seen roaming the neighborhood climbed their fence and ran at the girl. The brave family dogs saw the their little sister was in trouble and intervened to saver her life.
This wasn’t the first time the Wagners had met the bear. However on this occasion the bear seemed to have a dangerous and destructive plan in mind.
Wagner said, “I looked up and the bear was about 15 feet from her and walking right toward her. The bear was between us. Chief heard her scream and immediately grabbed the bear’s back leg, at which point the bear turned and bit Chief’s face and leg.”
The other three dogs, all rescued pit bulls then ran in to assist the family. Together they managed to scare the bear away, forcing it back into the woods.
Luckily the brave dogs stopped what of could of been a very horrific attack, however with this being a regular occurrence, we can only hope that Long Valley, New Jersey will put something in place to protect it’s residents.
