The Strange Tale That Proves Montanans Are The Toughest People In America

We don’t need to hear any odd stories to know that Montanans are an extremely tough group of people. We endure harsh winters, hard work, and all kinds of situations that force us to be resourceful. However, every now and then a tale comes along that reminds us that we are, as a whole, extremely brave. And the story of the Montana woman who fended off a bear with a zucchini does just that.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

While we do not recommend using a zucchini (or any produce) as a weapon of choice against such an attack, we admit this woman was “beary” resourceful.
