I have something very important to tell you all.
Zucchinis aren't just vegetables anymore.
I just saw this article on smh.com and thought you should all be privvy.
Woman fights off bear with zucchini
September 24, 2010 - 2:21PMPolice say a Montana woman fended off a bear attack with an unlikely weapon - a zucchini.
Missoula County sheriff's lieutenant Rich Maricelli said a 90-kilogram black bear attacked one of the woman's dogs on the back porch of her home near Missoula just after midnight on Wednesday.
When the woman, whom police did not name, tried to separate the animals, the bear bit her on the leg.
Maricelli said the woman reached for the nearest object at hand on the porch's railing - a large zucchini she had harvested from her garden.
The woman flung the vegetable at the bear, striking it and causing it to lumber off.
Maricelli says the woman did not need medical attention.
Wildlife officials were trying to locate the bear on Thursday.
