California Teen Fights Off A Mama Brown Bear To Save Her Dogs

Videos by OutKick

A California teenager faced down a brown bear to save her dogs and lived to talk about it and rack up an insane amount of views when the TikTok video of the incident went crazy over the weekend. 17-year-old Hailey saved the day by pushing the mama bear off the block wall so her and the dogs could run to safety.

Remember the days when the entire school wouldn’t have heard that you fought off a brown bear over summer break? You’d get back to school after Labor Day, and everyone would catch up on stories from summer. Then you drop a nuclear bomb that you fought a brown bear. It’s the story that blows Stacey’s family trip to Vegas where she ends up getting ripped on vodka at the clubs after sneaking out of the family’s Luxor room right out of the water.

Hailey has the clear story of the summer for 17-year-olds out there, and it’s not even close. Good luck beating this one.

  1. Not sure how many people can claim they physically pushed a mama bear with Cubs and lived to tell about it. That young lady has nerves of steel but probably not the smartest decision she will make this summer.
