Mother fends off bear attack - with macaroni and cheese
A mother in Fairbanks, Alaska, found herself in a melee with two bears when they cornered her and her children on a wilderness hiking trail. The woman used everything she had to defend herself - including macaroni and cheese:
She said the bear charged at her several times, including once after it tried to attack her dog. That’s when she smacked it in the head with her walking stick, which broke. She also attempted to distract it by throwing the package of macaroni and cheese.
