NJ Woman Kicks Dead Bear After it Attacked Her Llamas, Breaks Toe

By Chad Love

Here's one from the "Don't Kick Them When They're Down" files, or maybe the "Don't Make Me Angry. You Won’t Like Me When I'm Angry" files. A New Jersey woman who was defending her llamas against an aggressive black bear ended up receiving a broken toe in the melee after repeatedly kicking the now-dead bear's head in a self-described "hissy fit."

From this story on lehighvalleylive.com:

Lydia Chiappini was asleep on a couch in her art studio when she awoke to the screams of one of her llamas being mauled by a bear. But she didn't think too much of it at first. "I thought he might have been wrestling with another llama because they make the same noise, you know?" Chiappini said Monday. She quickly, however, found herself between her llama and the bear, an intruder police ended up shooting.

 

"...She stood her ground. "The bear kept coming at me and I kept yelling at him, 'Get out of here! "It was probably kind of stupid," she said, "but they're like your kids, you know?" As the bear advanced, she screamed again. As the bear retreated, she spotted a police cruiser's emergency lights flashing in the darkness. New Jersey State Police arrived "like in movies when the cavalry come to save the day," she said. Police yelled: "You're covered in blood! Whose blood is that?" Chiappini said. It was her llama's, not hers. She was fine, she told them.

New Jersey State Police officers eventually shot the bear, but Chiappini apparently had some unfinished business with the bruin. That's when she decided to go all "Office Space" on his head.

As the bear lay shot dead on the ground early Sunday, Chiappini let out her frustration. "I had a hissy fit and kicked the bear in the head," Chiappini said. "And broke my toe."

Moral of the story? Give it your best shot...

With all of the hubbub surrounding NJ's bear season last year I really would like to know what her opinion of it was pre-llama attack.

Reminds me of a ...time when
My wife became angry over something I said
I went on an errand to clear my fat head
she then kicked my chair instead of the door
and when I came home, found her on the floor
I saw your chair and it looked like your azz
so I put ice on her foot and some in her glass
we talked it over and thought it through
we started to laugh, the best we could do
(broken toe)
