Video: Courageous cat scares off scaredy-cat bear
In a battle between a big, black bear and your average house cat, who would win? In the case of one fearless feline, the answer is not what you'd think.
Petsami, an online animal entertainment network from the creators of America's Funniest Home Videos, posted this hilarious YouTube clip of a massive black bear being chased off by a courageous cat.
The hapless bear is just doing what bears do, lumbering about and sniffing stuff, when out of nowhere appears a black and white cat. The bear is clearly shocked, and beats a hasty retreat as its assailant lets out a shrieking meow.
Incredibly, the cat gives chase, making sure the big old bear goes away and stays away.
An American black bear can weight as much as 1,100 pounds (500 kg). Your typical house cat tips the scales at less than 1/100th of that. But as this video proves, its not the size of the cat in the fight, but the size of the fight in the cat that really matters.

Huge bear is a scaredy cat
This might be something right up your alley ... cat
A black bear can get as big as 1,100 pounds?
Speaking of alley cats
If that was a mother cat protecting her litter then no one should be surprised by her reaction. The bear looked like a cub, so maybe it fled from a screeching attack it had not yet experienced.
A very interesting cat story. Over to you Slings and Arrows. :)=^..^=
This belongs in Breaking Newz!
It is catastrophe I can bearly watch!
The author should have done more due diligence in his research ...
Weight: 200 to 600 lbs (90 to 270 kg)
We could use that cat around here. A few days ago, a bear walked into a local Sears. There have been several bears spotted around here over the last few weeks.
Another viking kitty takes out a DUmmy
Same cat has probably mauled a few rabbits and chipmunks.
House cats are absolute badasses if they want to be.
They are mini tigers.
I have a 7 lbs grey tabby named Tatianna (after the tiger), and a 100 lbs German Shepard.
Guess which one is the boss.
The cat. Until the dog gets really hungry
House cats best stay indoors.
Hmmm I tried to watch that, but it says document does not exist on server.
Well the thing is the dog only has one attack, the lethal one.
He caught a squirrel in the back yard and bit the poor thing in half right across the stomach area.
I gave him the nickname Scissorfang after that.
She on the other hand is a flying boxer. I ‘ve seen her attack the top of his head from upside down in the air above his head.
Unless he choses to kill her, which he won’t, she wins.
“... I can bearly watch”.
I saw what you did there... :)
I’m sure they were glad to have the customer.
Howdy Jack. Thanks for the poem!
We don`t do “due diligence in ...research” here-
Since we live in the mountains, we actually go out into the woods in groups and actually get confronted by big bears all the time-
Sometimes they come down from the highest mountains and raid the garbage bins in town and those garbage fed bears are HUGE!
We always bring pans and big spoons to create a racket to scare the bears off.
Up here we`uns see big black bears all the time gettin` into the berry patches and hunkering across the open mountain meadow grass into the woods- They go pretty big here- I have see some half as big as a 1955 Oldsmobile- A black bear here matures fully grown at 3 years or so- if he is 800 pounds at one year he is well over 1,000 pounds at maturity.
But they go well over a thousand pounds here in the mountains at maturity-viz:
...ent a Ticonderoga nimrod who bagged a 1-yr-old bear which tipped the avoir- dupois at 821 lbs.”
Sorry- just west of here they grow-`em twice as big `n bigger!
“Four Theresa hunters bagged a 2511 pound black bear near Cranberry Lake, a few days ago.”
A junk yard cat or a cat with an attitude?
Here’s a bear rescue story for you...
A friend sent it to me a few days ago.
I don’t think that one will run away. In fact I think he will stick around for lunch.
If cats are gonna live in this country, they need to speak English...
World record American black bear: 805 pounds.
