Teen pushes bear off wall to save her dogs!

Teen pushes bear off wall to save her dogs!

A WOMAN was filmed pushing a bear off her garden's wall to stop it mauling her dogs. The mama bear then begins swatting at the dog, and three smaller dogs join in the confrontation with one, a little Yorkshire terrier, appearing to get caught by one of the bear's paws. "And to be honest, I don't think I pushed her that hard, just enough to make her lose her balance, so she drops my dog and I run out of there!"

Home surveillance video aired by the ABC 7 television station shows the mother bear perched atop the wall, swatting at a large black dog on the ground. Morinico escaped with a small scratch, and she and all of her dogs are doing fine.

The fearless teenager recorded a follow-up video, in which she explains what happened.

"The bear was protecting her cubs, she was reacting to protect her cubs and the dogs of course were reacting to protect their territory", she said. It was exactly at this moment, the young girl plunged into action and shoved the bear off the wall and scooped one of its tiny dogs and ran inside.

Morinico's cousin posted a video of the teen's heroic act Monday to TikTok, and it has since been viewed more than 44 million times. She and the other dogs then run out of the video frame. The caption of the video read, "My cousin Hailey yeeted a bear off her fence today and saved her dogs". A few dogs won't be able to take down a adult bear, especially one will cubs!

The bear sits on top of the fence, with two cubs hiding underneath.


"They started barking, our dogs, and I thought they were just barking at a dog because they always bark at dogs or squirrels or whatever, 'cause they're dumb", she adds.

Hailey Morinico suffered a finger sprain when fighting off a bear.

"She shoved that bear like it was a stuffed animal", someone said on TikTok.

"Am I the only one who feels bad for the bear getting knocked off the wall?" one person commented.

The video attracted thousands of comments, with some people praising the woman while others pointing out that the bear was just trying to defend its babies.
