HELENA, Mont. A Montana woman fended off a bear trying to muscle its way into her home Thursday by pelting the animal with a large piece of zucchini from her garden.
The woman suffered minor scratches and one of her dogs was wounded after tussling with the 200-pound bear.

Good thing she wasn’t holding a basket of fruit. She would have had banana clips, grapeshot and pineapple grenades.
She did have her V-8.
No fruit was involved in the attack, only vegetables so no it is not a gay thread.
When zucchini is outlawed, only outlaws will have zucchini.
I was going to post a link to a comic about vampire squash, but I can’t find it quickly.
That’ll teach me to not bookmark stuff when I find it.
Is it illegal to transport zucchini across State lines?
Yes,but only if for immoral purposes.
Actually a pretty brave woman to come to the aid of her collie like that.
Definitely not an Obama supporter.
Ron Jeremy once held off a bear with... his zucchini...
There was some fierce hand to paw combat involved too...
“She kicked the bear with her left leg as hard as she could, and she said she felt like she caught it pretty solidly under the chin,” Maricelli said.
But as she kicked, the bruin swiped at her leg with its paw and ripped her jeans.
No fruits but there was a bear involved...
Yes, I was a flight attendant for waaaayyy too long. I know too many "code" words.
I guess one of these would squash an unwelcome intruder.
It shows what a 14-inch of... er.. zucchini could do for you.
Goodness, you probably hear alot of code words in everyday conversation then. =)
Yes. Zucchinis are deadly weapons. Did she have a permit for the zucchini? Was it sorta like the concealed carrot permit?
“Sometimes the bear gets the zucchini, sometimes the zucchini gets the bear”
Actually, it’s not completely clear from the headline and first sentence which happened here. The AP refers to “bear attack with zucchini” and then the first sentence elaboarates in referring to “the animal with a large piece of zucchini from her garden.”
Bruised Bruin beaten in a game of squash.
I hate zucchininnini.
Naw in this case it was more like open carrot.
That’s got to be some zucchini!
You can fill in the rest.
You betcha! Montana women are tough, except the whiney, wimpy commie broads in Missoula.
