Posted in: Dog saves the day after 5-year-old boy attacked by bear in Akita See in context

The article is from a sports tabloid so take it with a grain of salt, but supposedly it was a fully grown critter (成獣とみられる) so "meter high" probably means at the shoulder. Curious black bears are known to run from dogs and even house cats, but all the same allowing people in the country to possess hunting weapons (not handguns or military-grade weapons like in the US) with proper registration makes sense. If that had been a starving bear driven to approach human-inhabited areas for food the dog would have been lunch, and the kid would have been lucky to get away.
