Who thought a woman could fight off a bear with that weapon?

According to reports, as the woman was being attacked, she grabbed a laptop nearby and smacked the black bear with it.

California Fish and Wildlife Capt. Patrick Foy said, "She managed to break free of the bear enough to run back inside."

Also, she had some minor injuries on her legs and arm and none of them is life-threatening. Foy explained that the attack was "100% unprovoked."

In fact, the foothills of San Gabriel Valley are not commonplace for bears. However, unprovoked attacks are rare as per Wise About Bears.

When an individual finds themselves in an attack from a bear, Foy said that "the unequivocal answer in California is to fight back."

Moreover, he said the option to play possum only works if it is a grizzly bear. It does not live in the above state, though.

The bear hunt

After the incident, DNA swabs from the girl’s wounds were taken to be analyzed in a forensics lab. It is said that analysis gave the officers the full DNA profile on the next day.

Quickly after that, wildlife officials captured two bears in the vicinity. Although they analyzed their DNA, neither matched the offending bear’s profile. Both of them would be released in the “nearest suitable habitat”.

Black Bear
The woman fights bear article made a lot of eyes wide open.

Reports are they were taken into the Angeles National Forest which is around 25 miles away from the place they were caught.

Meanwhile, the black bear that attacked the girl is nowhere to be seem. When it slides in the officials’ sight, the bear will be put under animal euthanasia.
For the unknown, California only has black bears although some may be brown. Wild grizzly bears are not one of them.
