This Week's Bad Ass: Now With Fur

From Yahoo (thanks Don Barree):
WEST MILFORD, N.J. - A black bear picked the wrong yard for a jaunt, running into a territorial tabby who ran the furry beast up a tree — twice.

Jack, a 15-pound orange and white cat, keeps a close vigil on his property, often chasing small animals, but his owners and neighbors say his latest escapade was surprising.

"We used to joke, 'Jack's on duty,' never knowing he'd go after a bear," owner Donna Dickey told The Star-Ledger of Newark for Friday's editions.

..."He doesn't want anybody in his yard," Dickey said.

Here's a link to the full story. There's a slideshow option that has a great picture of the treed bear and "Jack" standing guard.
