"SHE SHOVED A BEAR", aptly exclaimed one user in all-caps, while others had similar sentiments. On TikTok, it was confirmed that all the dogs were "a little scratched" but doing okay and the bear with its cubs too were safe.
The bear is seen sitting on the fence, lashing out at the dogs. Several cubs also appear to be with the larger animal, suggesting that it's a mother bear. If a bear breaks into your home or yard, officials say not to confront it.
Hailey comes flying over and pushes the bear from the fence and it falls off.
California teen, Hailey Morinico, 17, ran towards the action and pushed the bear off the wall before running away carrying one dog.
"Do not push bears and do not get close to bears", she told KCAL-TV.
The video is a surveillance footage and it filmed on Memorial Day, the incident took place in US California.
In a comment on the post, Brenda explained both Hailey and the dogs were okay and the family had been out gardening when the dogs spotted the bear.

The courageous teenager recorded a follow-up video, in which she explains what happened. "She's a baby", Morinico said.
Another wrote: "She was probably just trying to protect her cubs". "And as her slave, I have to protect her".
"Good job human momma, could have been worse for the pups".
Morinico's cousin posted a video of the teen's heroic act Monday to TikTok, and it has since been viewed more than 44 million times.
'She sent the video on our family group chat and I just knew people would think it was insane so I posted it. The bear was about to step into her backyard and there was a possibility that this could mean danger for her family dogs, who were barking to raise alarm as it tried to intrude on the property.
"Am I the only one who feels bad for the bear getting knocked off the wall?" one person commented. "So I go over and look the bear in the eyes, and the first thing I think to do is push it. Push a bear, push an apex predator".
She added she doesn't think she pushed the bear that hard, just enough to make the bear lose her balance.
