A Florida teenager only 15-years-old survived a black bear attack last Sunday in her hometown of Eastpoint, Florida, and Leah Reeder credits her dog Ralph for the reason she's alive today!
The young lady was walking her dog when she says she was suddenly being attacked by the dangerous bear. She said:
"I was down on the ground, and ended up on my face. The bear was on my back biting me."
Leah didn't know what to do and instinctively decided to play dead which is when the bear backed off and then her pet dog Ralph sprung into action - barking at the much larger animal until it left the canine and his owner alone.
Leah Reeder walked the rest of the way home after the attack and her mother couldn't believe what she saw.
