A 20-pound French bulldog named Jules is being hailed for bravery after chasing away two large bear cubs from a Southern California home.
The dog’s brave defense was captured on surveillance video, provided to KTLA Los Angeles. A third bear–apparently the mother–watched from a distance.
CBS Los Angeles noted that Monrovia, which is near the San Gabriel mountains, has been seeing increased bear incursions as the result of recent wildfires in the surrounding woods that have deprived the bears of food.
The homeowner, David Hernandez, joked that his dog had turned into a “wolverine.”
