Couple Bravely Fights Off Bear Inside Their Home While Their Children Are Sleeping

Parents will do everything to keep their children safe, especially at home. And that means ‘everything,’ even fighting off a dangerous wild bear. That’s exactly what this Wisconsin couple did, something completely unimaginable just to save their lives and to ensure the safety of their children.

On the evening of the 20th of May, at approximately 11 o’clock at night, the black bear was able to climb into their home after breaking a window. Both the husband and wife had witnessed the bear in the backyard feeding itself from a bird feeder. Because of this, they decided to open the window and call the bear to leave the area.

Instead of scaring the bear off their property, the beast charged toward them and broke in through the window.

The press release stated that the police said the bear “immediately turned and charged at the house, breaking through the window and into the house and immediately attacked.”

It was a scary and terrifying experience. But both the husband and wife kept fighting back. They refuse to be defeated by this huge animal. They sustained injuries from the attack but they never backed down.

The bear was reportedly killed by the couple by being stabbed with a kitchen knife. After that, the husband went in search of a gun, and he used it to make sure that the deadly intruder was killed. Even though they were both attacked multiple times, the husband and wife managed to survive the ordeal. They were transferred to a nearby hospital. They have been discharged from the facility right after.

Thankfully, the couple’s children were able to make it through the event without waking up.

Authorities said that the said black bear was frequently seen near the home. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources explained that black bears usually avoid humans. However, they can be territorial and be “defensive when protecting its young or a food source.”

The bear was taken by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for testing.

Bears are naturally cautious around humans, but if they come across a source of food and aren’t scared away, they may return for more. Bears go through “hyperphagia,” a feeding frenzy in late summer and fall in which they gain 3-4 pounds and consume 20,000 calories a day in preparation for hibernation. This can lead to more conflicts.

Bears that no longer fear humans are considered “nuisance bears.” These are sub-adult males or young bears that have recently become independent from their moms and are still learning how to find food. These can also be mothers with cubs.

Bears are one of the most well-studied and photographed creatures on the planet because of the significant ecological and aesthetic benefits they provide. They are responsible for moving seeds over long distances, sometimes more than birds can do. Bears increase the amount of light that reaches the forest floor by cutting down trees above it. This makes it possible for more plant and animal species to thrive.

Bears also smash logs as they look for food. This speeds up the process of decay and lets more nutrients get back into the soil. This means that bears play a very important role in maintaining forest ecosystems.

In many states, these bears are shot or relocated when they cause problems. Of course, most of the time, this situation might have been avoided if humans hadn’t made food so accessible in the yard or trash dumpster for these bears to feast on.
