    Awful situation all around, but I have fully-fenced property. The bear didnt accidentally come onto the property. And I also have livestock as do my neighbors. My assumption would be that this bear is now a danger in general :-(

    I would most likely shoot.

    Gotta have a dog with enough fight in it.

    Great Pyr and Bear - a True Story


    From website above;


    Dennis Loxton has said that most Great Pyr owners do not know just how much protection they have. Dennis should know. He has used the Great Pyr for over 30 years to protect forestry workers in the interior of British Columbia, an area famous for its Grizzly Bears.

    and,,
    Frank is their Female Great Pyr;
    "Eric says that Frank was actually up to her chest in the water greeting the girls coming in with the canoe, when she suddenly turned around and started running right at him, then; went right past him. The bear came out of the woods behind Eric...”

    and;

    There was the dog, facing off with a black bear right next to the fire pit, where Eric had been standing only moments before. The dog kept pressure on the bear. She was pushing the bear back. The dog was constantly moving, constantly darting in and out, and constantly barking and snarling. There was no indication of fear. She was systematically charging and retreating, and pushing the bear away. At one point the bear took a swipe at her, and hit her, but she did not falter. She lunged and got in even closer. I could not believe what I was seeing. This was the gentle giant that lies at my feet. This was the docile creature that sits by the door and awaits my return when I walk to the mail box. The beast before me kept forcing the bear back into the woods. She was a fierce and ferocious dog. I could not take my eyes off her.

    If the dog is already dead, killing the bear isnt going to bring him back... although, I understand the thought process and I can't say I wouldn't kill the bear myself. In my limited bear encounters, I've found that it doesnt take much to scare a bear off. So, maybe a shot or two will do the trick.

    That is very true, Sixto, it depends on the bear. We had a realtor out showing rural property when he rounded a corner face to face with a black bear. The bear woofed and popped and the realtor slapped it on the face with his realty file. The bear took off like a scalded rabbit. Hope for a cowardly bear.

    That bear would certainly be history. You can mess with me, but you better do not dare to mess with my pet.

    I would kill it to death. I think my 12gauge with 3" slugs could do the job if I had time to get it. A .45ACP.... maybe if I could get a perfect headshot. But I doubt it.

    None of that would come into play for me. I would risk my life for my dog without question. She's family and a best friend. If she had opposable thumbs she would do the same for me.

    Wouldn't you do the same for this face

    Wouldn't want to be your dog. Maybe you could call 911 and be a good witness instead.

    You mean the horse, right?

    I'd definitely be taking a shot, 9mm or otherwise. If one of my dogs were in her chops, I'd be laying them as strategically as possible to get her to drop him.

    If I were living in/near bear country, you can bet I'd be carrying at least a 45 ACP.
