LB woman survives bear attack

LONG BEACH — The instant Janet Herman let her family’s dogs, Buddy and Rusty, out of the back door early last Friday morning, the scene on her porch became so chaotic that she didn’t realize until later that a bear had bitten her.

While Herman and Rusty quickly made it back inside the house, the family’s beloved miniature schnauzer Buddy was not so lucky.
