64-Year-Old Woman Punches Bear In The Nose After It Chased Her Dog In Maine

One woman confronted the bear head-on after her dog was chased by the bear.

A 64-year-old woman confronted a black bear “head on” and stood up as tall as she could before punching the animal in the nose after it chased her dog in Maine, officials said. 

According to USA TodayLynn Kelly was working in her garden in Porter, Maine, Friday at about 11:30 a.m. local time when her dog started barking and ran into the woods. When Kelly went to investigate, her dog ran out of the woods and was being chased by the bear.

“Kelly confronted the bear head on, and when the bear stood up, she stood up as tall as she could, then punched the bear in the nose,” the wildlife department said.

When Kelly hit the bear, the animal bit her right hand and punctured her wrist before immediately releasing her wrist and running back into the woods, the wildlife department said.

Kelly was taken to Memorial Hospital in North Conway by ambulance after she called 911. She was treated for puncture wounds on her wrist, the wildlife department said.
