Woman Chases Bear To Save her Pet Bunny

Just in from the Anchorage Daily News - a woman chased a bear who grabbed her paralyzed pet bunny from an enclosure in her yard Thursday morning. Read the article here. I feel bad for the woman who thought her rabbit was safe until the bear jumped a fence to get at her bunny. She then managed to chase a bear in her stocking feet and couldn't get her beloved rabbit back from the bear. The bunny is gone and the bear is in really big trouble. The woman who the article didn't name risked her life to save her rabbit to no avail. Even in tamer places than Alaska, pets need constant supervision outdoors to be safe from wild predators that wander into cities and towns. I have heard of bears breaking into rabbit hutches, but this is a first.
