Most humans would not dare approach a wild animal, even in their backyard. However, dogs are far less afraid to confront their wilder cousins and much less hesitant to shoo them away. If they feel any threat from a visiting wild animal, dogs will not think twice about protecting their families.
This is what this dog in a viral TikTok video proved as he barked furiously at two bear intruders of their home. In the video, one of the two bears attempted to climb an apartment porch.
At that time, Birdie saw the incident from her apartment, which was one floor above. She then filmed the incident, and as the bold bear gets up, a dog appeared to confront him. Birdie can also be heard warning the two bears about the presence of a fierce dog, but the bears seemed unbothered.
When the bear finally reached the top of the porch railing, the medium-sized brown dog ran right up to the bear. The dog then barked at the bear furiously as if trying to shoo him away.
The bear seemed caught off guard and soon panicked at the sound of the vicious barking from the dog. Meanwhile, the bear’s companion started to run after hearing the sound of the dog’s furious barking.
After the incident, Birdie uploaded the footage on her TikTok account, which later on went viral. She then explained that black bears are frequent visitors in their vicinities. While some of these bears are friendly, some others could pose harm to people.
According to Birdie, the dog’s reaction was laudable because he defended his family’s safety. Netizens then shared their thoughts about the dog’s reaction, saying what he did deserves respect. For them, the dog showed so much passion in ensuring that his family is safe from any harm.
