Woman Single-Handedly Shoves Bear Off Her Garden Wall After It Tries To Attack Her Dogs

A video that has now gone viral on TikTok shows how a woman tossed a bear off her garden wall in order to save her dogs.

Published online by Brenda (@bakedlikepie), who happens to be the cousin of the woman in question, the shocking video captures a moment as Hailey throws a bear off her garden wall after it climbs it up to approach some pet dogs.

"My cousin Hailey yeeted a bear off her fence today and saved her dogs. How was your Memorial Day?! (WTF?!)," Brenda wrote as a caption to her video.

The video was captured by Hailey’s CCTV camera, and it shows how a brown bear, along with her cub, climbed up the garden wall in Hailey’s backyard. There are a number of dogs hanging around in the backyard, and as they witness the bear, they rush towards it to ward it off with their barking.

However, the bear attacks back; it leans down and starts grabbing the dogs. Hailey then suddenly notices what’s going on in her yard, and so she storms directly towards the bear. She gives the large mammal a shove, and in turn, it tumbles from the wall - buying her enough time to gather up her dogs and scoop them inside to safety.

The video has racked up 3.9 million likes and more than 28 million views on TikTok, where thousands have commented to praise her bravery.

Hailey says that in the process, she injured her finger and knee. But she said that the incident wasn’t really surprising to her. "I was in the mountains, so this was actually really normal and in summers [bears] always come down." She continued, "They start barking - our dogs - and I thought they were just barking at a dog because they always bark at dogs or squirrels or whatever because they're dumb. But I go to tell them to stop, and when I went over there to see what they're barking at, I'm like, 'That's a funny-looking dog!' And by the time I get there, the bear is literally picking up one of my dogs. 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, man. And to be honest, I don't think I pushed her that hard, I just pushed her enough to lose her balance. So she drops my dog and I run out of there! I grabbed my other dog."
