Black bear attacks mother cow, herd fights back (8 Photos)

I received these photos from Kettle Valley, BC. Early yesterday evening, one of the ranchers, Wayne, went out to check on the herd when he spotted a black bear dangerously close to the cows.

In a flash, the bear charged one of the cows, a "12 year-old very attentive mother, one of our best cows who wouldn't give up easily." The bear clawed the momma cow's face and clenched down on her neck.

Wayne said, "all the cows were bawling, the bear was squealing, the calves were running around with their tails in the air."

Just then a 7 year-old Angus-Cross cow described as, "one of the smartest of the lot", took action. What followed was an event rarely photographed in nature. The two cows teamed up and flanked their attacker. They rushed the bear from either side and, "just crushed it."

After that, the entire herd came to their aid to chase the black bear from the field. The mother cow is under observation now and seems to be doing just fine. That is some tough beef.

    You should all be pun-ished for your comments.

    Another reminder why it's a bad idea to go up against something that weighs 4-5 times what you do.

    • ...

      following that logic my friday nights will go to shit…..

    • ifukdurmom

      Your mother didn't think it was a bad idea

    • fuzzybeard2016

      Give me an RPG-7 and I'll take that cow on.

    • kooks

      don't tell a wolverine that. it weighs 40lbs a grizzly weighs at least 8 times more than that and will fuck off if a wolverine shows up.

        Psychotic woodland creatures are exempt from this concept.

    #5 I said, "stay down"

    • hMMMM

      Kinda reminds me of the Battle at Kruger when bulls chased lions away.

  • Jeff

    Looks like a baby, or are all black bears that small?

    • David Laperle

      Maybe not a baby, but a young one for sure. Black bears can be quite large, and would have pwned that cow easily, without giving time to the herd to come to the rescue!

      Adult males typically weigh between 57–250 kg (125 and 550 lb), while females weigh 33% less at 41–109 kg (90–275 lb)

      • asdasd

        57kg? An adult male? God damn!! I guess the term bear can describe really hairy, anorexic male
        homosexuals then…

      • ROK247

        its a pretty small bear. 1-1/2 year old, probably 150lbs or less.

      • DWD

        I actually a bear expert. This bear was exactly 7months, 2 weeks, 6 days, and I wanna say 4-5 hours, years old and weighed 24.56kg, judging by this photo. The diet mainly consist of honey and picnic baskets. Trust me.

  • MyGreenwoodAnaconda

    That Bear must have an Achin'noggin! Get it? Okanagan?
    Found himself Up "Rock Creek" without a paddle!

    One problem…these pictures aren't "exclusive" at all. These photos came out last fall.

    • elbruces

      The revolution has begun. If cows have realized they can fight off a bear, they'll surely realize they can fight us all off as well.

  • Hand of Fate

    That was awesome. Bear fail.

  • Philip Kiers

    Poor bear.
