Attacked By a Bear!

Well, it looks so much like our Great Pyrenees, Sir Moose that I wonder if it was guarding a herd or flock or other family pets. Pyrs are fearless and will take on any critter they deem a threat or danger to their charge, be it human or animal.


The poor dog took a pretty bad mauling, see stiches in several places on it's side as well as in it's head. A little prayer for this dog's recovery wouldn't hurt a thing.


Anyway, here is the picture she posted, followed by a picture of our Sir Moose. By the way, when she first saw the picture, for an instant she thought it WAS our Sir Moose she told me later

A Pyr can usually fight a bear, but it takes two or three. Often times they will put collars on them with spikes to protect them from the bears. Poor thing...

One of the ladies on the Pyr forum posted pictures of her 3 Pyrs who had a bear up a tree. Were protecting an alpaca herd. A lady out in northern California also had alpacas and was inquiring about getting a Pyr go guard them as there was a cougar in the area killing sheep, alpacas, etc. She was advised to get two. One will face it, the other attack from the rear, when it turns, their roles will be reversed.


Pyrs have a LOT of excess fat, skin, fur on their throat to help protect them. I actually trim up Sir Moose's throat and upper chest becaue he tends to get food on it, hangs down into a full dish of his rice mixture.
