"Service dog saved by super human teen!! Thank you Hailey! And Thank you God for protecting my daughter and the dogs," user @realestatebeauty posted on Instagram.
The viral video has been viewed more than 40 million times across all social media platforms. The video shows a large brown bear walking across a backyard fence with two small bear cubs when several dogs run out of the residence and start barking at the bear.
The teenager, identified as Hailey, runs out of the home and pushes the bear off the fence after it snatches one of the pups.
According to the teen, Hailey, "I live in the mountains so this is really normal and it's summer so they always come now."
The woman who posted the video said Hailey and the dogs are both doing fine. She added that one of the dogs was "a little scratched" but the injury did not appear to be serious.
She said the family intends to put up "higher fences," according to a comment made on TikTok.
