A security camera in California caught the moment a teen girl rushed to save her dogs from a potential bear attack, NBC Los Angeles reports. Now, the insane moment captured on the surveillance camera is going viral online.

This weeks viral TikTok video shows the moment a young woman pushed a bear off a wall to save her dogs. The video showed that soon after the wild animal entered the home, a big black dog and two smaller dogs came to the backyard to chase it away.

Her advice: Do not push bears.

Hailey Morinico was unhesitant when confronting a bear swiping at her dog.

The incident happened on Monday at the teen's backyard in Bradbury, California and the shocking encounter has been watched by millions on TikTok and even on Facebook and Instagram.

Others felt a bit bad for the bear and hoped it wasn't injured after falling off the wall.

"The bear was protecting her cubs, she was reacting to protect her cubs and the dogs of course were reacting to protect their territory", she said. The largest of the four dogs runs out and begins angrily barking at the bear, causing the two cubs to run the other direction. "I go to tell them to stop and when I go over there to see what they're barking at, I'm like 'that's a funny-looking dog.' By the time I get there, the bear is literally picking up one of my dogs". While the bear quickly climbed back onto the fence, this gave Hailey enough time to gather the dogs and get them out of the area. "And the first thing I think to do is push it, push an apex predator, man. And somehow it worked", she told the local news outlet.

Luckily, Morinico walked away with just a scraped knee and a sprained finger.

Hailey comes flying over and pushes the bear from the fence and it falls off. "Don't do what I did, you might not have the same outcome", said Hailey.

People on Twitter hailed Hailey as a hero and there are a lot of tweets pouring in for her.

In 2007, an 11-year-old boy was snatched from his family's tent and killed in a rare bear attack in Utah's Wasatch Mountains.
