No Fraidy Cat Here: Watch a Fierce Feline Chase Away a Bear

Scaredy cat? How about a scaredy bear! This cat sends 400 pounds of startled black bear running for the hills.

Editor’s Note: This video comes to us from Petsami, the YouTube channel for funny pet and animal videos.

There seems to be some sort of turf war going; a turf war between cats and bears. We’re not sure how the two end up confronting each other, but we’ve already seen one video where one calico cat fended off a nosy black bear, and now here’s another one!

The black bear is just trundling along, mind his own bearness, when he gets too close to a cat and the cat jumps out, yelling, “Hey, bear! Get off my lawn!”

The bear is startled and heads off running with the cat in tow. Lesson learned: Don’t mess with a cat and his lawn, especially if it’s his crop of catnip.

Seriously, though, we’re still scratching our heads at how a cat and a bear ended up in the same place, and why this was caught on camera.

Unless it was some cat’s idea of a practical joke … like Punk’d, but for the animal kingdom. We have a feeling that if there were such a thing, cats would be the predominant pranksters and dogs their hapless victims. We’re pretty sure we’d also be the butt of their jokes. Look at your cat now … yeah, see that look? That’s a look of smug amusement. Yeah, she knows what you’re thinking.
