Tough-As-Nails Teen Pushes a Brown Bear Off of Her Porch (Video)

A video is going viral that shows a group of dogs swarming to a patio to fend off a brown bear and her cubs that had come over the wall.

Eventually, the brown bear starts to go after the dogs. That’s when a California teenager comes running out of the house to grab her dogs, and gives the brown bear a shove off the wall.

The teenager said that she lives in the mountains and bears appearing at people's houses is "really normal," especially in the summer.

She said she heard her dogs barking, which was not unusual, so she went to tell them to stop and saw the big bear picking up one of her smaller dogs.

She said, ”I go over to the bear, I look it in the eyes, and the first thing I think to do is push it. Push a bear. Push an apex predator.” She didn't shove it too hard, but just enough so that it lost its balance.

The teen sustained a scraped knee and a sprained finger.
