Odd headlines No 12

Thanks to the BBC for this one - well, two really:

The link on the website reads, misleadingly:

Woman repels bear armed only with a courgette

Which goes to a story headlined, equally misleadingly:

Montana woman fights bear with courgette


The Telegraph has a front-page link which is also misleading, but possibly on two levels:

Woman beats bear with courgette

However, the actual story headline comes close to being coherent - close, but thanks to a typo (read it carefully), not quite:

Woman fends of bear attack with courgette
