Hero Pit Bull Attacked By Bears In Florida Protecting Owner’s Daughter

BROWARD COUNTY, Florida – A three-year-old pit bull is being treated for her injuries at the Lauderdale Veterinary Specialists after she was attacked by bears in the Big Cypress Indian Reservation in northwestern Broward County while protecting her owner’s daughter on Friday night.

The female dog, an American pit bull terrier, named Mary Jane, is being treated in the intensive care unit. Mary Jane’s owner said she had been visiting her daughter on Friday night when the dog was attacked by three bears. Just prior to the attack, Mary Jane ran off – presumably to protect her owner’s daughter.

Mary Jane was originally taken to Lakeside Animal Hospital in Plantation and then referred to LVS for treatment. She is being treated for deep puncture wounds covering most of her body. At this time, veterinarians are administering fluids, providing pain medication and giving her antibiotics to ward off any infections.

Her prognosis looks good and she should make a full recovery. Get well soon Mary Jane. You are a hero.

The incident occurred at the Big Cypress Indian Reservation of the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
