My dads dog was attacked by a black bear today

uploadfromtaptalk1356304872264.jpguploadfromtaptalk1356304887406.jpg

Dog weighs 75lbs. Vet estimated, by the size of the canine bites to lip (4-5 inches) , that the bear was between 350-450 lbs.

Man what a mess but dog is ok now. She won't be winning any beauty pageants anytime soon.

That is horrible man but glad she is going to be ok. My dog weighs almost twice as much as her and he would not stand a chance against any bear either...not sure any dog would.

Damn That sucks.

Did they just sew the two edges where the chunk is missing together?
