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.
