Golden Retriever Caught on Camera Scaring off Alaskan Brown Bear

Astonishing footage has captured a brave golden retriever defending his owner’s property from a fully grown brown bear. Alaskan artist and musician Nicholas Galanin shared a video on social media of his 11-year-old dog named Pretty fending off a big brown bear near his home the night prior. Pretty repeatedly barks at the creature as it walks directly towards him.

At first, the bear seems nonplussed and starts sniffing the pooch’s mouth. It seems like it is winding up to hit the pooch before he lunges at the predator. Incredibly, Pretty then manages to chase the bear away from the drive. In the clip, the courageous canine stands his ground and barks incessantly as the bear sniffs around the property. At one point, the two animals meet nose-to-nose. The bear seemingly prepares to strike the dog before Pretty snaps, sending the bear reeling.

The loyal dog’s owner, Nicholas Glanain, posted the video to Facebook with the caption: “Considering changing Pretty’s name to Legend. He’s always been a good bear dog.” The remote town of Sitka has a population of just 9,000 people, but the Alaska Department of Fish and Game reckons there are around 1,550 Alaskan coastal brown bears in the surrounding areas. Alaskan brown bears are typically larger than their more famous grizzlies. “We have lots of bears, though I’ve never seen them engage this closely,” Nicholas told Snopes. Watch the video, this fearless pup barked and snapped, not giving up an inch until the bear retreated back into the night. What a dog!
