The neutrino production in gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) that occurs inside pulsar wind bubbles (PWBs) was addressed. Focus was on neutrino production through photomeson interactions with the external photons from the rich radiation field inside the PWB. It was found that the ∼1016 eV neutrino fluence from a GRB at z∼0.1-1 implies ∼0.01-1 upward moving mouns in a km2 detector simultaneous with the γ rays.
