In order to save her pets, a California teenager shoves a huge bear off a wall in her backyard, according to a video that has received millions of views on social media.
The footage was posted online by the woman's cousin Brenda (@bakedlikepie), who wrote: "My cousin Hailey yeeted a bear off her fence today and saved her dogs. How was your Memorial Day?! (WTF?!)"
A giant brown bear and her cub have managed to clamber up onto the wall of a backyard, which overlooks a spot where a number of dogs are hanging out, according to footage captured by a home security camera.
The bear reaches down and begins snatching at the pets as the dogs run about barking at it.
As the bear continues to swipe at the dogs, Hailey rushes out into the yard and sprints straight towards the creature.
She gives the giant beast a strong shove, which causes it to fall from the wall, giving her ample time to gather her dogs and bring them inside to safety.
I think you'll agree that it's rather spectacular.
On TikTok, the video has 3.9 million likes and over 28 million views, with thousands of comments praising her bravery.
In a follow-up video, Hailey recalled how pushing the bear off the wall was the 'first thing' that came into her head.
Hailey, who also revealed she sprained her finger and hurt her knee in the incident, said:
"I was in the mountains, so this was actually really normal and in summers [bears] always come down."They start barking - our dogs - and I thought they were just barking at a dog because they always bark at dogs or squirrels or whatever because they're dumb.
"But I go to tell them to stop, and when I went over there to see what they're barking at, I'm like, 'That's a funny-looking dog!'
"And by the time I get there, the bear is literally picking up one of my dogs.
"I go over to the bear, I look it in the eyes and the first thing I think to do is push it... Push a bear, push an apex predator, man. "And to be honest, I don't think I pushed her that hard, I just pushed her enough to lose her balance.
"So she drops my dog and I run out of there! I grabbed my other dog."
In a Facebook post, Hailey's mother, Citlally Morinico, called the occurrence "one of the scariest moments in life."
“Superhuman strength to save her dogs,” she captioned the video on Instagram. “My child did not even think, she just ran to save them.”
