Default Attacked by a Bear

One of my cyber golden retriever friends posted this picture on FaceBook yesterday--had gotten it from her friend in WI. All she posted was that the dog had been attacked by a bear. And was giving warning to folks living in Eden Hill, WI, I think it was.

Well, this dog looks so much like our Great Pyrenees, Sir Moose that Martha, upon just glancing at the picture first thought "oh no, not Sir Moose", then realized it was WI, not Tex, and no bears (as far as I know ) around here.

Prys are protectors of herds and flocks, of their family, even family pets. They are fearless. I have no idea if this dog was trying to protect something, or just went after the bear, or the bear went after it. The bear did a number on the poor dog, that is for sure. All those stitches and the drain in it's side, stiches on his head. Probably lots of other damage not seen. This is the picture of the badger marked Great Pyrenees that battled the bear,

And this is my Sir Moose

Hunter...forever in my heart

Poor dog. He was probably just following his instincts ...protecting his "flock". We had a male Pyr (Georges) years ago. They are amazing dogs

I sure hope he gets well! I can see why you confused him with Sir Moose
