    My Siberian got out and unfortunately was loose & we were trying to find him ..... but it was fortunate for a little girl. Some 'unknown' guy pulled up, leaving his car door open and grabbed the girl and started dragging her to his car (as she screamed and fought him). My Siberian..... loved kids, and I always said... I pity anyone who would mess with a kid around him.

    The Siberian (Timber) ran out of the bushes and at a dead run jumped into the middle of the guy's chest... obviously knocking him flat. He then kept himself between the guy and the girl, and would not let him grab her ... even though he tried.. Finally , the dog chomped into his leg and wouldn't let go.... guy hobbled to his car with dog in tow on his leg and hurriedly left.

    The Police called to let us know they had our dog.... then we learned what had happened. Good DOG !!! He ate hamburger and steaks for quite awhile. He knew he did good. He's now deceased, but one great dog while he was here.

    Eagleks: great story! I've seen my Lab/GSD intervene, though much less dramatically; but that's all that was needed.

    User: The Eastern Co's of WV are generally the more rural, Western more inhabited. But we all know about generalization. Anyway, what co. ya' talkin' bout?

    PS: We all know there's no cougars in WV, DNR says so.

    I've read in several articles where these cougars have attacked mountain bikers and have either killed or injured them.

    Sounds like your dog was one in a million.

    The hard part was picking up the dog ...... as the family of the girl was there and her younger brother had alligator tears and kept hugging the dog and saying "Mr... your dog saved my sister's life". Of course Timber (the Siberian) was sucking all of that in too. Police were convinced if it had not been for him intervening, she may have never been seen again.

    The guy who tried to grab her was very determined to get her in his car, and the dog... was just as determined to not let that happened from what we were told. Once he left, she walked to the nearest school while holding onto the dogs collar for protection (in case the guy reappeared) and they called the Police.

    Any Canadian members around who can clarify the law?
    This event happened in Boston Bar, a small town along a highway going through a long canyon by the Fraser River. The dog sensed the cougar before it showed itself, the dog intercepted the cougar attack giving the kid time to run to Mom. They called 911, the RCMP came within in minutes (You can drive the length of town in about 3 minutes), the cougar had dragged the dog under the porch and was chewing on it. the cop shot the cougar in the hip, and when it released the dog he shot it in the head. The dog is getting a lot of respect!! I won't be surprised if the dog gets an award

    As for our laws, in a rural area you can have a unloaded long gun handy for predator defense. Handguns must have a barrel of more than 106mm (slightly over 4") and must be kept locked up. If you are using a "safe" then ammo can be stored with the gun and no trigger lock required. For remote areas, people can apply for a 'Authorization to Carry" (ATC) to carry a handgun for work in the bush, gun must be around 44mag, sometimes 10mm is allowed.

    You can carry a unloaded handgun on your hip in your house and possibly near the house in your yard (law has yet to be defined) The gun is considered to be "in use" and therefore not subject to the Storage or Transport regulations.

    By the way this is the 2nd cougar attack in a week in our Province, in the other case the woman saw the cougar stalking her kid she ran out after the cat and "snapped a towel into it's nose" the startled cougar ran off. Never get between a Mom and their kid!!!!

    As a kid when I would be out hunting,I always would have a feeling of being watched in this one area of a canyon.I learned to sit and look around real quite and sure enough up on the ridgeline a cougar would be about 2-300 yards away creeping along "watching me"...Hell, later I found out he was not watching me,but stalking me!Heck , I said to myself...just a little closer and that will put $50 bucks in my pocket..enough for a new Winchester 30-30!!

    I am fairly sure I saw a bobcat one time in an area on the east coat where there had been some attacks; it might have been a large feral cat, but I don't think so-- too big.

    I know someone who has a mountain lion poking around their farmland and neighbors cattle ranch, not all that far from civilization and actually just 10 miles from a major interstate hwy.
    I live in a community of about 15,000. A few yeas back, I was walking through town one night, and lo and behold, cougar trots right across the street about 30 yards in front of me. Either it didn't notice me, or wasn't particularly hungry .

    This was before my carrying days, but it made me acutely aware of their presence. They also get pretty big near here. A guy in my rifle club has a stuffed cat that charged him and took two well-placed .300mag shots to shop. When they stuffed him, his stomach was completely empty. He was hungry... The thing is in the Oregon record books, and had a skull only 1/16" too narrow for the national books.

    Indeed they do. Where my wife and I live there are plenty of them. We have special hunting seasons for those cats. We always carry OC during our exercise walks. We have not seen any of the critters but seen plenty of other beasts, pretty interesting and possibly trouble. We keep armed>>
