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.

    Cows aren’t as dumb or docile as a lot of people think…and Charolais are downright snooty. But to be fair, if that had been a full grown black bear, things would have turned out differently.

    You can almost hear the cow yelling, "Who's at the top of the food chain now bitch?!"
