Rocky to the rescue!
A Wolcott woman says her dog rushed out and went after a Black Bear in their back yard.
Laura Canby heard something outside by the garbage, and went to check it out, that's when Rocky came running and she saw the Bear.
Her daughter was just arriving home on the bus, and Laura yelled to the bus driver to keep the doors closed. The driver called animal control, and police showed up shortly after.
It’s Rocky the dog vs. the bear! Scary moments for the dog’s owner as the scuffle played out in this Wolcott yard. Thankfully Rocky escaped with just a couple of cuts. #NBCCT— Matt Austin (@mattaustinTV) October 4, 2018
