People are willing to do anything to protect their animals, and if that involves getting physical with a bear, so be it.

Over Memorial Day weekend, video was posted to TikTok showing a brown bear harassing a group of dogs from atop a fence it was trying to climb.

The bear was on the wall with its cubs, trying to get into the yard, but the dogs didn't like that. Four dogs, three smaller and one bigger dog.

As the bigger dog charged with the smaller ones in tow, the two cubs took off down the wall. The dog lunged at the bear to scare it off, but the bear sat on its perch and swung its paw, hitting the nose of the dog.

@bakedlikepieMy cousin Hailey yeeted a bear off her fence today and saved her dogs. How was your Memorial Day?! (WTF?!) #ohno #badass #brave #fight #bear

♬ Oh No - Kreepa

The dog lunged again, and the bear hit it again on the nose, this time a little harder before the same thing a third time.

As the owner came outside, the bigger dog ran back into the house and the bear turned its attention to the smaller dogs yipping at it.

Just as the paw of the bear was reaching down to the small dogs, the owner came running full speed up to the bear, shoving it off of the fence.

She grabbed one of the smaller dogs who wasn't ready to back down, and ran them all back into the house as the bear came over the fence into the yard.

Since its original posting over the weekend, the video has racked up over 40 million views.
