Engleski seter Pit odbranio je svoju porodicu od napada medveda u severnom Nju Džersiju. Pit je usvojen iz prihvatilišta za pse, a proveo je 18 meseci sa svojom porodicom pre fatalnog napada medveda.
Below is an account from my husband of yesterdays pack walk. "Today we lost our brave, old man Pete. The dogs surprised a black bear just off the trail while we were hiking this morning. It must not have heard or smelled us with the pouring rain. It felt threatened and turned around. Pete stepped up and held off the bear until I could get the other dogs to safety. Once I was sure they were safe, I went back and scared the bear off, but Pete was gravely injured. I was able to get him back down to the main trail and, thanks to Cathi and Kate, we were able to get him in a car and to the hospital pretty quickly. He held on like a real trooper the whole time, and he was never alone in his pain. The x-rays revealed some pretty bad spinal damage that would mean he could never walk again, if he survived all the surgeries (not a certain thing at his age). We decided it was best to let him go this afternoon. Run free Pete, you no longer have all those aches and pains of old age. You had a great 18 months with us running the days away like you loved." Please light a candle for Pete and remember that fostering and rescuing a dog can sometimes save you. Senior dogs have so much to give. Love you Petey. Save me some cheese for when we see each other again. ❤️?❤️
Pit i ostali psi su iznenadili medveda koji ih je napao, a engleski seter je pokazao hrabrost kada mu se suprotstavio, sačekavši da svi ostali psi budu na sigurnom. Nažalost povrede koje je medved nano Pitu bile su fatalne.
Psi su bili u šetnji sa Kejti koja je vlasnica firme “Me & My Shadow Pets”. Tužnu vest podelila je sa prijateljima na Instagramu.
– Danas smo izgubili našeg hrabrog, starog prijatelja Pita. Pse je iznenadio medved pored staze kojom smo planinarili ovog jutra. Verovatno nas zbog kiše nije mogao osetiti i namirisati. Pit je stao i zadržavao medveda dok smo ostale pse sklonili na sigurno. Kada sam se uverila da su svi na sigurnom vratila sam se i oterala medveda, ali je Pit bio teško povređen – napisala je Kejti.
