Old, Arthritic Lab “Blackie” Dies Saving Owner

Speaking of cougars . . .

From The Province:
_"I was petrified," said [Prince George man, Wayne] Krasnesky. "I've never seen a cougar growling at me 10 feet away."

Blackie, however, acted quickly, throwing herself between Krasnesky and the big cat.

"She can barely walk and she mustered up some kind of courage from somewhere, knowing if she was going to jump in, it's not a fight she's going to win," recalled Krasnesky.

The cougar went for Blackie's throat._
