The bear sits on top of the fence, with two cubs hiding underneath.

The mother bear is clawing at the dogs whenever they come near until Hailey appears.

Hailey comes flying over and pushes the bear from the fence and it falls off.

The dogs run inside and Hailey scoops up one of them and she also runs inside.

"My cousin Hailey yeeted a bear off her fence today and saved her dogs," Brenda wrote in the caption on Tiktok.

"How was your Memorial Day?"

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.

People were stunned by Hailey's bravery and said she was a good dog mother.

"She shoved that bear like it was a stuffed animal," someone said on TikTok.

"She's on my team for the zombie apocalypse," another commented.

Some concerned about bear's wellbeing

Though a few others were concerned about the bear's wellbeing, with people saying she was also protecting her babies.

"Both mommas just protecting their babies," someone said.

"Good job human momma, could have been worse for the pups."

Brenda shared a video Hailey made, explaining what happened in the video and saying she lives in the mountains, so seeing a bear isn't too uncommon.

Hailey explained when the dogs started barking, she thought they were just barking at another dog or a squirrel.

It was until Hailey went over to the dogs, she saw the bear.

"By the time I get there, the bear is literally picking up one of my dogs," Hailey said, showing a picture of Valentina, the "baby" dog who was picked up by the bear.

"I go over to the bear, I look it 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.

Hailey added she had sprained her finger and "screwed" her knee, but apart from that she is all good.
