"Wisconsin couple kills bear that charged through window, attacked them in their home"

1
A couple was attacked by a bear inside their northern Wisconsin home Friday night after the animal broke through their window, authorities said. The husband and wife were both injured, but their children -- who were asleep in their bedrooms at the time of the attack -- were unharmed, the Taylor County Sheriff's Office (TCSO) said in a news release. The husband shot and killed the bear.

The couple first saw the bear outside eating from a bird feeder, so they opened their window and yelled at it to try to get it to leave, TCSO said. "The bear immediately turned and charged at the house, breaking through the window and into the house and immediately attacked," TCSO said.

Both the husband and wife sustained several bites and injuries as they tried to fend off the attack, at one point stabbing the bear with a kitchen knife, authorities said. Eventually, the husband was able to get a firearm and shot and killed the bear.

The bear was an adult female and appeared to have one cub that was seen running off as the bear had charged the house.

When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride,
He shouts to scare the monster who will often turn aside.
But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail,
For the female of the species is more deadly than the male.
To be vintage it must be older than me!

I don’t think a mother bear with cub needs to be infected with rabies to fly into a rage when surprised by any perceived threat. It is a protective response from Moms to charge first and ask questions later. Especially large Moms who are used to the strength of their bodies overcoming all other competitors in their habitats. Their psychology cannot be compared to human mothers. But it can be understood if we mix male traits with female biology, which is essentially a black bear.

I have to agree with Bisbee. Go into most bear country and you will be told in no uncertain terms, DO NOT GET BETWEEN A MOMMA BEAR AND HER CUBS! Most wild animals and some tame ones, you just don't get between them and their offspring, unless you are willing to lose some vital body parts.
