Bear spray ?

Unlike their larger cousins, black bears tend not to be violent unless provoked. There are always exceptions, esp. when the bears have become familiar with humans, when they expect/smell food, etc.

Id be having a pretty strong sit down with my dogs too.

I'd be doing more than having a chat with them.

I'd have some dogs up for sale for some real ones.

But in all fairness, those dogs were probably house kept lap dogs if I were guessing.

Perhaps the wind was from the wrong direction and they never smelled the bear until it was too late.

Clearly the bear was able to track them, and they're mostly nosers. I don't think Bears can see worth a damn.
