Danger? This pup doesn’t know her! German shepherds are popular choices as police and military dogs for a reason – they are ruthlessly brave and will protect their territory and hoomans at all costs. In the video, a German shepherd chases the intruding black bear around the children’s play area as if they are playing tag, but the dog was not here for games.

We have fun watching these encounters, but it’s important to note that if and wildlife approaches your home, you should call authorities. Please don’t try dealing with the situation by yourself, and please don’t hurt one of these wild animals, they might be confused and act aggressively.
