U.S. teenage girl fights off mother bear to protect her pet dogs

One can see the bear violently swiping at the black dog as well as the other dogs.

A California teenager is now on the verge of becoming an overnight hero after she saved her dogs from a bear.

Another said: "She's a true hero".

The video is a surveillance footage and it filmed on Memorial Day, the incident took place in US California. On TikTok, it was confirmed that all the dogs were "a little scratched" but doing okay and the bear with its cubs too were safe.

Hailey Morinico didn't hesitate when she saw a large bear facing off with her family dogs from the top of a wall in their Southern California backyard.

Brenda shared a video Hailey made, explaining what happened in the video and saying she lives in the mountains, so seeing a bear isn't too uncommon. A post sharing the video on Reddit has received over 10,000 votes and 3,000 comments in six hours. "But I go to tell them to stop, and when I go over there to see what they're barking at, I'm like, 'That's a funny-looking dog'".

People should never approach a bear, especially one with cubs, Barboza said.

Hailey's quick thinking both impressed and shocked viewers of the video, with one writing: "She just shoved that bear like it was a stuffed animal".

The 17-year-old charged down the bear and shoved it off the wall.

"So, I go over to the bear, and I look it in the eyes", she says. Praising her daughter, Hailey, for her superhuman strength, the mother added on Instagram, "My child did not even think, she just ran to save them".

The video attracted thousands of comments, with some people praising the woman and others pointing out that the bear was probably trying to defend its cub. "I have to protect the baby".

Hailey said: "Honestly, I did not know it was a bear until right after I pushed it".

She added she doesn't think she pushed the bear that hard, just enough to make the bear lose her balance.

Fortunately, neither bear nor dog was seriously harmed during the risky skirmish, and Hailey only suffered a sprained finger and scraped knee for their efforts.
