A young girl has gone viral after a video of her taking action against a huge grizzly bear went viral.
In the quick clip, you see the bear climbing toward four small dogs, who are barking and fending it off as best they can. Suddenly, a lady runs toward the bear, pushing it off the wall it was climbing to get to her pets. That lady is actually a 17-year-old California teen by the name of Hailey Morinico — and she says that in the moment, she didn’t realize she was fighting a bear.
“The mother bear was with her two young cubs looking for food before she began pawing at Morinico’s four barking canines – Wednesday, Sparkles, Valentina and TJ,” Daily Mail reports. According to the site, Hailey also told Good Morning America: “Honestly, I did not know it was a bear until right after I pushed it,” adding “I didn’t know I had it in me to be honest. Who does that? Who in their right mind pushes a bear?”
She took the words right out of our mouths, amirite?
‘The bear, she was picking up this dog, Valentina, and she was literally off of the ground, and I had to do what I had to do,” Hailey reportedly said in another interview with CNN. “So I knelt down and I had about two seconds to think, and the first thing that popped into my head was to push the bear off the ledge.” Valentina is Hailey’s mom’s support dog.
