Because of the courage of one very protective dog, a Tiktok video shared by user @hernameisphiladelphia, also known as Birdie, has received more than one million views. This dog was more than eager to confront a wild animal that was four times his size, most especially when he saw that this animal was dangerous. His courage is what struck a large number of people.
Birdie’s brief video began with a black bear climbing a support beam to an apartment’s terrace. Another bear was waiting on the ground nearby. The woman filming attempted to warn the bear that a dog resided in the area but, of course, the bear did not understand that.
After completing its ascent, the bear stood on the terrace railing and surveyed the surrounding area. It appeared that the creature was contemplating its next move and searching for something to eat. As the unwelcome visitor proceeded to the opposite side of the railing, a medium-sized dog suddenly darted from nowhere.
The guard dog barked furiously and charged at the invader without hesitation. He barked so loudly and appeared so threatening that the bear leaped into the air. The wild beast was frightened by the dog’s sudden presence and ferocity. It was so terrified that it even peed itself.
The other bear, that was still on the ground, did not see what was happening but was alarmed by the loud barking.
As soon as the dog appeared on the camera, the animal could be seen fleeing. It is reasonable to believe that the bear immediately descended and rushed away once the video finished. There is a significant likelihood that the two wild creatures will not return soon.
The situation may have gone the opposite direction. Fortunately for the amazing dog, the trespassing bears were still immature and young. They decided to flee rather than fight because they were overcome by their fear.
