Question of the Day
Woman punches bear to save dog
JUNEAU | A woman says she knows it was stupid to punch a black bear in the snout to save her dog.
But Brooke Collins said the attack happened so fast that all she could think about was keeping her dachshund, Fudge, from being killed.
The 22-year-old said Fudge started barking as soon as she let her dogs out Sunday and she saw the bear carrying him like a salmon.
Ms. Collins told the Juneau Empire that she did the first thing she thought of and punched the bear’s face and scooped away her dog when it let go.
The startled bear took off through bushes to a mountain.
Fudge suffered some claw and bite marks, but they weren’t deep.
Grandpa charged with abusive hikes
FLAGSTAFF | An Indiana man is accused of forcing his three young grandsons on brutal hikes at the Grand Canyon, beating them, making them walk on ulcerated blisters, denying them food and water, and pushing them to run up the trail under the intense sun.
Christopher A. Carlson, of Indianapolis, was arrested and charged with child abuse. A complaint filed by the U.S. attorney’s office in Flagstaff says rangers and passers-by reported alleged abuse by Mr. Carlson against the boys, ages 12, 9 and 8.
One of the hikes was 19 miles last weekend, when temperatures reached 108 degrees at Phantom Ranch along the Colorado River, the Arizona Daily Sun reported. A ranger spotted the group with binoculars on a trail and saw Mr. Carlson shoving the eldest boy and whipping him with a rolled-up shirt, authorities said.
