Security cameras can sometimes capture very compelling footage. The latest example of that is this brave dog chasing a bear away from his neighbor’s backyard.
As USA Today’s FTW shares, the confrontation took place on Tuesday in Hewitt, New Jersey. Mark Stinziano posted the video on Facebook, explaining that his kids were home when the bear appeared. As you can see from the video, the dog whose name is Riley sprints up to the bear and gets him to leave.
Luckily Riley doesn’t seem to be injured as he returns to the backyard at the end of the clip. Still, I wouldn’t want my dog facing a bear anytime soon.
