In a startling video, two black bears were caught on camera fighting at a South Lake Tahoe home Sunday.
The fracas was loud, with a few good punches but no serious damage. Still, it was a terrifying brawl.
Even though the two bears are enormous, it didn’t stop homeowner Lisa Quick from running out to break up the fight. “I screamed and my dogs started barking and we ran out there to break it up,” Quick said, “I see bears every single day but we’ve never had them fight before.”
The footage was captured on a Ring camera, and both bears growled aggressively toward each other during the skirmish. Quick broke up the battle, but the vicious swiping seen in the footage could have easily taken her head off.
Quick said she adores the bears in the area and that they’ll usually leave her carport if she chases them away. The only bears found in the area are black bears, and males typically grow from 250 to 350 pounds, according to the official Tahoe Bears website.
