SILVER CLIFF - A man is said to be recovering after he was attacked by a black bear in Marinette County, and his wife killed the animal by pounding a gun over its head.
Authorities said Gerre Ninnemann saw the bear running after his dog near his cabin at Silver Cliff yesterday. The bear tackled Ninnemann after a chase, and was biting-and-clawing at his back before he ran away. Sheriffs deputies said he was mauled again. In the meantime, his wife Marie took out a gun but she didnt know how to load it. So she pounded the weapon over the bears head, which let her husband escape. She then pointed the gun at the animal, as the couple backtracked into their cabin. A Marinette County deputy later killed the bear. There was no immediate word on Ninnemanns condition. The bear was taken to Madison for a necropsy. A state DNR official said the animal was only a year old. Supervisor John Huff says there have only been a few bear attacks of people in Wisconsin in the last few decades.
Maybe should have used the other end of the gun.....
Black bear attack in Wisconsin ping. A lot of people have claimed that black bears won’t attack humans on this board.
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Husband...I think it would be a good idea to teach the Mrs how to load the gun.
This article is written poorly. He saw the bear chasing his dog but the bear caught him after a chase? What?
When he saw the bear chasing his dog why did he not retrieve his weapon and load it?
“A lot of people have claimed that black bears wont attack humans on this board.”
And they’re the people I want running -behind- me in the woods.
From the article: “... his wife Marie took out a gun but she didnt know how to load it. So she pounded the weapon over the bears head, which let her husband escape. She then pointed the gun at the animal, ...”
First mistake was marrying a Liberal female who won’t allow a loaded gun in HER home.
Gentlemen do not marry Libtards.
If they find Libtardism in a family member, they educate/train said Libtard accordingly.
In this case, the Libtard likely damaged a gun.
Two clauses from the article:
1. “his wife killed the animal by pounding a gun over its head.”
2. “A Marinette County deputy later killed the bear.”
Did someone revive the dead bear so the deputy could kill it a second time? Or perhaps journalists again showing why they are a low paid and fast-dying breed.
... and his wife killed the animal by pounding a gun over its head.
...A Marinette County deputy later killed the bear.
The most dangerous bears are the ones that need to be killed twice before they are really killed.
Perhaps the dog couldn't get to his weapon?......
Concur. We’re left to guess and fill in the blanks with this disjointed piece.
True, they usually attack humans in the woods, maybe around trash containers, or in a zoo.
Now if only that could be said for some Freepers (ok, I'm sometimes guilty too, I suppose, but I try hard to not make it personal), certain politicians & gov't employees...
“The most dangerous bears are the ones that need to be killed twice before they are really killed.”
Thats why I am preparing for the zombie bear apocalypse.
LOL. That right there is funny.
A wife who doesn’t know how to load a gun is even worse!
A møøse once bit my sister on this board.
The most dangerous gun of all is the gun in the hands of the IGNORANT/untrained/hoplophobic.
The gun that won’t go “bang” when needed will get ‘ya dead.
To quote Obama, "That is not optimal!"
My momma always said, “boys chase girls until the girl catches them...” It wasn’t until after college I understood the totality of that statement.
Great tagline, BTW. Lots of truth in that one. Then again, considering those bonuses to IRS employees, maybe it should be “give your money to the gov’t and a little of it will go to the poor”.
After reading this poorly written, with confusing and conflicting reporting...dude...teach your wife how to load and shoot the weapon. Sheesh.
Eh? One year old bears know about guns pointed at them?
(If the wife had been swinging the gun at the bear, I might understand, given the prior head-whacking...)
The bear tackled Ninnemann after a chase, and was biting-and-clawing at his back before he ran away.
Well, I assume Ninnemann ran away, but given the wording, it could have been a case of the bear getting a taste of DEET.
Wifey is apparently not sufficiently versed in proper use of a gun, but it is also fair to point out that a woman who will effectively defend her husband against with an awkward club against a bear is a keeper.
Why not? Sharks attack people on surf boards, so why won’t bears attack people who surf boards?
Yep...lol..."...I don't have to be real fast...just faster than you..."
Perhaps the bear was “merely stunned”....(parrot shop joke)
And theyre the people I want running -behind- me in the woods.
Two guys out hiking. One of them spots a .22 revolver in the other guy’s belt.
“What’s THAT for”?
“You’re going to shoot a bear with a .22? Wow are you stupid!”
“Nah. All I have to do is shoot YOU in the foot.”
