Sally Rebehn, Grandmother, Fights Off Bear With Pillow (VIDEO)

As CBS Early Show Harry Smith anchor put it, this is no Goldilocks story. A Colorado grandmother, Sally Rebehn, was watching a Rockies baseball game with her son when she got bored and decided to turn in. When she was in her room getting ready for bed, she heard the door open. Rebehn assumed it was just the family dog. It was not. Looming before her was an enormous mother bear. Grabbing the nearest weapon at hand, a pillow, she somehow managed to fight the bear off.

Smith helpfully (?) re-enacts the scene Rebehn.
