Dog Chases Away Bear

A New Jersey man is ready to buy his neighbor's dog a special treat after the dog rushed into his backyard to chase off a bear. 

Mark Stinziano's backyard security camera captured video of a bear that had knocked over a bird feeder and was eating its contents. The dog, Riley, then pops into the frame after coming through Stinziano's fence. He charges and collides with the bear and relentlessly chases it out of the backyard. 

Stinziano posted the video to Facebook on Tuesday and said Riley is a dog that "comes to check on the kids from time to time." The video had about 9,000 views as of Wednesday night.
