Black Bear Attacks Hunter In Virginia, Tearing Softball-Sized Chunk From His Leg

News from Virginia.

A Virginia hunter was attacked by a black bear, with the animal taking a softball-sized chunk out of his leg.

Ronnie Dalton, 68, from Carroll County had been out hunting on Saturday in Hillsville and was about to pack up for the day when the incident occurred, The Carroll News reported.

Dalton was in his hunting tree stand when he noticed a black bear cub nearby. After scanning the area for the mother and failing to find her, he decided it was safe to climb down.

But when he reached the floor, he spotted her and the animal rushed towards him in an aggressive manner.

“When my feet hit the ground I saw her. She looked up and saw me and when that happened she made a beeline at me as hard as she could come. I tried waving my hand like they say on a black bear, but I guess that doesn’t work if they have cubs and feel threatened,” Dalton told The Carroll News.

Dalton decided in the moment the the best chance of saving himself was to climb back up into the tree stand. But he was not able to escape the bear’s reach.

“I thought maybe I would have a chance. When I tried to climb the tree stand, I got about three or four rungs up and she made a lunge on me and grabbed my right side. She bit me on my right calf and jerked me out of the stand,” he said.

The bear took a softball-sized chunk of Dalton’s leg, and left three or four large teeth marks. It also caused him to fall around 7-8 feet out of the tree, temporarily knocking hum unconscious.

“When I came to and got to my senses and looked, she was already leaving with her two cubs, thank goodness,” Dalton said. “And so then I looked down and saw my britches was tore and my leg gashed open. I said to myself, ‘I have to get out of here.’ I grabbed my bow and took off toward the house.”

Dalton thinks that being knocked out may have actually saved his life, because the bear may have no longer considered him a threat to her cubs.

Bad situation.

Question.  Did you have a large bore handgun with you?  This could have ended far worse than it did.

Defense Against Bears With .22 Rimfire

The reigning king of bear attack data (firearms, calibers, effectiveness) has a surprising one for you.  He has cataloged 20 instances of successful self defense with .22 rimfire.

For me the takeaway is to shoot what you’ve got and pray for the best, but I sure would want a large bore handgun.

It seems to me if you make your way into the bush with a .22LR, you failed before you ever left home.

Bobcat Versus Rattlesnake!

Some cats apparently shy awake from a direct confrontation with deadly snakes.  Not this one.  It’s faster than the snake, and won the battle.

This was a legitimate fight to the death.

Comments and observations?

He obviously saw the cat while still walking towards it.  Otherwise he wouldn’t have been catching it on video.

I think I would have turned around before he did.

Does Fred want to pet the kitty?

“I Could Have Touched The Bear’s Nose”

BY Herschel Smith
3 weeks, 3 days ago

I’d prefer not to be that close.

Renee Levow enjoys walking with her two German shepherds in the wooded area near her home on Rum Springs Road, about a 15-minute drive from Myersville.

Lately, however, the 53-year-old has been nervous to step outside, because on Sept. 21, she was attacked by a bear.

Levow said her two dogs were off the leash when, about a half mile from her home, she spotted a black bear nearby in the woods.

Her female dog, Kylie, chased after the bear, which she said weighed about 150 pounds. The bear then charged at Levow, after Kylie returned to her.

“I could have touched the bear’s nose,” Levow said this week about the encounter.

She is recovering at home from her injuries. The bear bit her two times above her left knee, wrestled her to the ground, stomped on her chest and damaged her face.

After playing dead for about 10 minutes — and her dogs Kylie and Bones possibly chasing the bear away — she called 911. Levow was sent to Meritus Medical Center near Hagerstown and then flown to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.

A surgical team worked on her face for four hours, said Levow’s husband, Steve. Renee said they had to sew up all her wounds.

“I have a good amount of damage, but I don’t know how it will turn out. It will be months until I know what I really look like,” she said. “There may possibly be nerve surgery above my right eye. We don’t know yet, because of the swelling.”

The Levows are glad the attack didn’t turn out worse, and hope it raises awareness of the growing bear population in the area. Steve said since he moved to the area with his wife more than 20 years ago, he’s never seen as many black bears in the area as he’s seen in the last few months.

They said they’ve seen more than a dozen black bears around their home this summer, which is in a wooded area of the county, roughly six miles north of Gambrill State Park.

Harry Spiker, a bear biologist for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Wildlife and Heritage Service, said the bear population has been growing in the state and region.

But bear attacks are rare, Spiker said, as the attack on Levow is one of only a few recorded in Maryland history. The last was in 2016, also in Frederick County.

Speaking with colleagues in similar positions throughout the region, Spiker said bear attacks usually happen because of three scenarios: Someone could intentionally or unintentionally be feeding the bear, through a bird feeder or other something similar; a person startles the bear when they encounter one at night.

The last scenario? Dogs.

“One of the most common [causes] is dogs … dogs and bears just don’t get along,” Spiker said.

That’s for sure.  Dogs will go after bears, and usually dogs are too agile for the bears, but you’re not.  But I’d rather have the dogs with me to alert me to bear presence.

Both the Levows and Spiker noted the topography and development in the region, as there is rolling farmland to the west and Frederick and its development to the east.

Because of this, the bears tend to travel along wooded ridge tops, like the area near Rum Springs Road.

“That is a natural funnel that the bears tend to come down,” Spiker said, adding Maryland’s healthy forested areas and plentiful food sources have likely led to an increase in the bear population since the mid-20th century.

DNR officials have set a trap in an attempt to catch the bear or others. Spiker said it’s unlikely the bear would be put down if trapped because it would be difficult to know if it was the one that attacked Levow.

Both Steve and Renee urged people who bike or hike in the area to be alert for bears, and not to approach them if they see one. Steve thanked DNR for bringing up some cans of bear mace for protection.

“We encourage anybody who walks up here to carry bear mace,” Steve said. “It’s probably better than a gun.”

Yea okay.  You keep your bear spray.  If I’m out and about in the bush, I’ll carry a large bore handgun, thank you.

Horse Injured In Dan Ryan Ride On The Mend In Tinley Park

BY Herschel Smith

Patch.com.

TINLEY PARK, IL — After a wild and dangerous seven-mile ride on Dan Ryan Expressway, NuNu the horse sustained numerous injuries, including bleeding from the left hoof, an injury to the right hoof and saddle sores on the right side of the horse’s body, according to state police.

After an evaluation with Chicago Animal Care and Control, NuNu was transferred to Forest View Farms, 16717 S. Lockwood Ave. in Tinley Park, a farm that has served the south and western suburbs of Chicago for over 60 years, according to its website. Injuries and updates were not specified by the farm.

“NuNu is currently part of a criminal case. The only publicly available information on her health is in the State’s Attorney’s report,” the farm wrote on Facebook. “We also appreciate everyone that reached out to ask about visits, adoption or care packages. NuNu is not receiving guests at this time …

The Dan Ryan ride, which began at 4:20 p.m. Sept. 21 at the 47th Street exit, ended after the rider, later identified as Adam Hollingsworth, exited the expressway at 95th Street and was taken into custody by state troopers. Another man, Darron Luster, was also charged after he refused to relinquish control of the horse over to troopers after Hollingsworth was taken into custody, police said.

Hollingsworth was initially charged with reckless conduct, disobeying a police officer and criminal trespass to state supported property, Illinois State Police said, and later also charged with aggravated animal cruelty, a felony.

Luster was arrested and charged with obstructing officers and resisting arrest, according to police. Both men were taken to Chicago Police District 5 headquarters.

State police received several reports of Hollingsworth on the expressway and troopers arrived on the scene at 71st St., where they found Hollingsworth surrounded by motorcycles. Troopers ordered Hollingsworth to exit the expressway, which he refused to do before police finally got him to exit the expressway at 95th St., where he was arrested.

This is a criminal investigation because he is a criminal and guilty of animal abuse.

The most surprising thing about this report is found in a link at the article to a Facebook report on the horse.

What an amazingly crazy weekend! We have a brand-new appreciation for the term “going viral,” and cannot thank you enough for all the supportive comments, messages and calls. This photo is of Chloe, one of NuNu’s new barn mates who would like to thank you!

When NuNu’s GoFundMe went up late Friday night, the expectation was it might generate enough money to pay for some extra care that goes above and beyond anything the farm might be reimbursed for while she is the custody of CACC, being housed at FVF. (One example of this is teeth floating.) The original $5000 goal was, in our opinion, hugely aspirational. WELL, we were absolutely blown-away by your generosity.

As the fund exceeded the $10,000 mark, it was decided to stop accepting donations for NuNu at this time. To be very clear – she will need specialized care for the rest of her life, and the money already raised will go for that. Once the court case has come to its end, there might be additional fundraising efforts for her long-term care.

For those asking to see the vet’s reports to “prove” her injuries, NuNu is currently part of a criminal case. The only publicly available information on her health is in the State’s Attorney’s report. We also appreciate everyone that reached out to ask about visits, adoption or care packages. NuNu is not receiving guests at this time …

You read that right.  Some jerk, or in the case, jerks, are asking for a report to “prove” the extent of the horse’s injuries.

I had initially figured that the people demanding such reports were just imbeciles, and was prepared to rehearse what I had said earlier on this.

True horsemen know how to care for horses.  I am a horseman.  You teach them, train them, ring ride them, teach them voice commands and leg commands and reign commands, brush them, bath them, feed them, keep them in well-constructed stalls, clean their stalls, medicate them, shoe them, and get them seen by professional Ferriers.  This man is an actor – he is no horseman.

The mayor of Chicago is a thug.  The man who did this to this animal is a thug.  He rode the horse without shoes along roadways until the horse was lame and injured beyond repair.  The hooves were probably cracked and not trimmed before the ride, and the horse should never have been taken on this ride.

And by the way, Hollywood movies that show horses galloping endlessly are stupid, fake, farcical, and lies.  Riding horses that way will kill them.  You don’t gallop horses for hours on end.  No one does that.  Horses can cantor, lope and trot.  They can gallop for very short distances.  Not long distances.  They will come up lame, their hearts will explode, they will break bones.  They will exhaust, they will die of dehydration.

The man who did this to an animal is wicked.  I know this because I once trained quarter horses.  And because I wouldn’t do this to an animal.

And then I was prepared to point out that I would trust the initial report of a Ferrier in lieu of a vet any day (not to disparage vets).  Ferriers see and doctor horses literally every day.  It could be followed up with a formal report from a vet.

But that’s not the point.  It dawned on me that the people demanding to see a report don’t care about any of that.  They just want to see a criminal exonerated, as long as the criminal is doing the work of the progressive state.

It’s the same way criminals associated with Antifa and BLM are being treated in Portland and Seattle – as long as they tear down the system, it doesn’t matter who gets hurt or how badly.  They are to be freed to do it again.

The people demanding to see a report on the horse’s health are awful, terrible people.  The good man cares about the life of his beast, and the bad man does not.  And the people who do not care about beasts won’t care about you or your family either.  Never forget that.

As for those among us who care but do not know, I will repeat myself, as I have stated about police officers who indiscriminately shoot dogs.  Give me five minutes with any dog and I’ll almost always get the dog to play with me in the backyard.  There is never any excuse for shooting dogs, and if police raids are a root cause of that, then end them.

If you don’t know and understand how animals work, think and play, how to communicate with them through voice inflection, timbre, voice commands, and touch, if you don’t know at least a little about doctoring animals, if you don’t know anything about the care and feeding of animals, then your father was a failure in your life, and you can tell him I said so.

Spend some quality time volunteering at a local farm or ranch feeding horses and cattle, doctoring farm animals, raising dogs, chickens and goats, cleaning stalls, and feeding animals.  It will be time better spent than spending it with humans, and it will teach you something about life, including the value of hard work.

Chicago’s “Census Cowboy” Caused Needless Pain And Suffering Of His Horse

BY Herschel Smith

Jerk.

The horse ridden for 7.5 miles on the Dan Ryan Expressway during an impromptu protest Monday by a man known as the “Dreadhead Cowboy” would not have survived without immediate treatment and may still be euthanized, according to Cook County prosecutors, who said the treatment of the horse was the equivalent of forcing an 80-year-old woman run a full marathon.

Adam Hollingsworth, 33, was held on $25,000 bond during a court appearance Wednesday after he was charged with a felony count of aggravated cruelty to an animal, as well as misdemeanor counts of reckless conduct, trespassing and other traffic offenses. He must pay 10% of that amount, $2,500, to be released from jail.

Hollingsworth has also been dubbed the “Census Cowboy” for his work with Mayor Lori Lightfoot to boost census participation in Chicago. He said he rode the horse on the expressway during rush hour in support of the #KidsLivesMatter movement — an initiative that aims to raise awareness and motivate residents to fill out the census to help communities receive better funding.

But Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Kevin Deboni said the horse was ill-equipped for this ride and was run almost to death.

Hollingsworth allegedly rode the horse onto the Dan Ryan at the 35th Street feeder ramp at around 4:30 p.m. Deboni said the horse spent most of the ride galloping, but it did not have on proper shoes for the pavement, which caused bleeding and “extensive damage” to its health.

Listen to me.  Listen to me.

Needless pain and suffering.  People who live according to God’s law don’t cause it to humans or animals.  The hunter cares about the ethical kill, and eats what he kills, or kills in self defense or defense of family, home and hearth.  He doesn’t trophy hunt, or kill for the sport of it.

True horsemen know how to care for horses.  I am a horseman.  You teach them, train them, ring ride them, teach them voice commands and leg commands and reign commands, brush them, bath them, feed them, keep them in well-constructed stalls, clean their stalls, medicate them, shoe them, and get them seen by professional Ferriers.  This man is an actor – he is no horseman.

The man who did this to an animal is wicked.  I know this because I once trained quarter horses.  And because I wouldn’t do this to an animal.

Ever.

Man’s Best Friend

With all the focus on two-legged threats recently, don’t forget about the four-legged kind.

Jennifer Stokya was visiting her mother in Arbor Vitae, north west of Fort Frances, when she was confronted by a bear in her backyard during a garbage run. Stokya said she lives in B.C. and just came down to visit her mother and help her with house chores.

“I stepped on the door step with full hands and fighting with trying to close the door behind me, I turned my back without looking up,” Stokya said. “Suddenly there was a loud hissing noise and a large paw whizzed past my head and it was a bear on his hind legs swiping at me.”

Stokya said she was trying to keep her dog, Dexter, from getting out the door. Although Stokya said Dexter is professionally trained to be off leash, he had been acting strange for several days and randomly growling at trees.

“Little did we know,” Stokya chuckled. “His swipe missed me and hit the garbage bag. He actually had me cornered, but thankfully the door hadn’t yet closed all the way, and Dexter pushed his way through the door and leapt into the air at the bear and successfully chased the bear up a tree about 20 feet away.”

Stokya said even while being chased by Dexter, the bear still managed to grab the garbage bag and a random loose coffee pod that had fallen out before running up the tree.

This is the season when bear sightings are most common. They are looking for food to add an extra layer of warmth before hibernating in the winter.

After calling the Ministry of Natural Resources, Stokya said they advised her to watch for the bear to come down and make noises to scare it away and make it feel unwelcome. However, the same bear came back wandering around the yard again.

“My mom spotted him first,” Stokya said. “She yelled and made noise and it didn’t even look at her. I came out and started yelling too and it at least momentarily stopped and looked at me and sniffed the air a little, recognizing me I guess. It wasn’t until my dog started growling and barking that the bear slowly ran off. I haven’t seen the bear since, but occasionally can smell that he is in the area.”

Stokya said a neighbour stopped by to warn them that he had spotted the bear behind the house when he he was driving by, so it’s still around.

“The next day the bear was back. But definitely not scared of us. I haven’t seen the bear, but definitely randomly could smell him so knew he was close by,” Stokya said.

“I was pretty shaken up for quite some time after, thinking of the close call, and how the whole situation would have been a lot different if I didn’t have my dog with me.”

Dexter’s treat for rescuing Stokya was steak for supper.

Who’s the good boy?  Dexter is the good boy.  That’s right.

Dexter is actually quite fortunate to have been a sole dog chasing a bear and to not only get away unscathed, but win the standoff.

More than one dog would have been even better.  If I lived in this neck of the woods, I’d carry a large bore handgun every step outside (and most of the time indoors).

But given enough of them, there isn’t an animal in North America who won’t run from a pack of dogs.  Even large predators will eventually give way to African dog packs.  In large enough numbers, they are an apex predator.

And our best friend.  At least, Dexter was.
