A TikToker who goes by the name Birdie and has a love for wild animals shared a video of a black bear getting scared off by a man’s pet boxer.
The video starts out with Birdie recording a juvenile bear climbing up a second-story balcony to snoop around for food. As it pulls itself up over the arm railing, the bear stands up on all fours balancing as best it could on the ledge.
“Guys, a whole a** dog lives there, you’re gonna get in trouble!” Birdie says in the TikTok video. “You’re gonna fall and get hurt.”
Birdie talks to a man off-screen hypothesizing that there was no way the dog’s owner would let the dog outside to interact with the bear. Right after she said that, the boxer appears on the balcony and runs right up on the bear.
The dog ferociously barks at the bear, which at this point, has climbed up a pole in the corner, cowering, trying to get away. The dog scares the bear so bad that it begins to urinate on itself. Another bear cub below can be seen taking off running at the sound of the commotion.
“That boxer or pit [bull] was with ALL THE SMOKE. He turned that bear into a cat QUICK,” one viewer commented on the video. “It’s kinda funny cuz bears are [supposed] to [be] strong and deadly but he got scared by a boxer the cuddliest [breed].”
