A back on the morning mat GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, back on the jits mat at 530am sharp. Nothing starts the day like some Good Morning Jits!
What Would You Do Wednesday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s WEDNESDAY! And I do love WEDNESDAYS!
Lions and tigers and bears! OH MY!
More and more wild animal attacks are occurring these days. I see some videos where idiot parents sit their kid on the back of a non-pet animal and act shocked when the thing goes crazy. Duh…that’s what they do when you screw with them.
This morning I read that a black bear down in Medford attacked a woman and her dog. Bear came into her backyard. When she came out, the bear went after her. Here’s the thing on that: that dog probably got that bear good and spooked. So, when she opened the back door, that bear was going to eat that dog and she stepped in it’s path. Then, once the dog saw that “Momma” had the bear distracted, it jumped in to save the day. Good dog?
So, that’s the scenario. You open the door, any door, and there is a bear. What Would You Do?
Unless your dog is a hunting dog (not a hunting breed) I recommend keeping the dog in the house. That thing has spent a life on treats, belly rubs, and timely meals. I highly doubt it is ready for a fight with a bear. No matter how it sounds with the door closed. So, if you let it out to chase the bear, and the bear decides to chase the dog, that dog is coming straight back into that house, past you. Now, YOU are the bears target.
If your house is up against the woods because of urban sprawl, and you are a non-gun type person, go to the store and get your bear spray. Have it by the door closest to the woods. That way it is readily available.
Finally, if you end up confronted with a bear, meaning you are just an unlucky, well you are going to confront your fears. Congratulations! Experts say “Don’t Run!” Totally agree. If you run, they will pursue and they are fast. Experts also say if you are knocked down by one to play dead if it’s a BROWN or GRIZZLY bear. Black bears…ya gotta fight back. Hope you been training!
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember if you watch an eye doctor perform surgery, that makes you an…EYE-WITNESS! HAHAHAHHAHAA…I saw it!
