One of the larger dogs runs up to the bear and is struck in the face several times by the larger animal.
The CCTV video footage captured on Memorial Day shows the bear pawing at the family's service dog at least thrice while the other three puppies gathered around the part of the wall where the bear was propped on and continued barking.
"I was like 'Oh my God, there's a bear, and it is taking my dog". "My cousin Hailey yeeted a bear off her fence today and saved her dogs", her cousin Brenda (@bakedlikepie) wrote in the caption.
While one user appreciated the length the dog owner went to protect her pets.
Another said: "She's on my team for the zombie apocalypse!"
People should never approach a bear, especially one with cubs, Barboza said.
According to Snopes, the video was viewed almost 10 million times in the first six hours after it was posted on TikTok.
Hailey Morinico and her mother were gardening in their backyard in Bradbury, Calif., on Monday afternoon when a bear and her cubs began walking atop a cinder block wall at one end of the garden.
Hailey comes flying over and pushes the bear from the fence and it falls off. "How's your Memorial Day?" As the pups keep grappling around, she manages to shove the giant bear to save her pet animals.
"So, I go over to the bear, and I look it in the eyes", she says. "I just happened to come out unscathed".
But she cautions others against trying similar stunts.
Branda, Hailey's cousin, shared the footage to her TikTok account on June 31, and gained over 15 million views in seven hours. "I have to protect the baby".
"I love bears so much however, if I saw a bear attacking my dogs and I had the opportunity to shove it off of a wall in order to get my dogs to safety I wouldn't waste a second of that time to do just that".
Suddenly, a woman rushes out and pushes the bear off the wall with her hands before grabbing the dogs and running inside. I just pushed her enough to make her lose her balance.
Hailey added she had sprained her finger and "screwed" her knee, but apart from that she is all good.
