Vigilant Cat Scares Away Would-Be Black Bear Intruder From the Doorway of Her Family’s Home

A vigilant Savannah cat named Nani lunged at a glass door and scared a curious black bear right off the porch of her family’s home in Eagle River, Alaska. The cat’s human, Darlis Elliott told KTUU that Nani isn’t always this brave.

She’s really such a fraidy-cat most of the time, I don’t know what got into her. She probably wouldn’t have lunged if we weren’t standing right behind her. …The bear came up our front drive way and walked around the house to the back. We were all kind of watching him as he came up the back porch and that’s when Nani saw him. She was watching him until he turned his face to the door, and that’s when she pounced. We were all really surprised that she lunged at him, but we were more surprised that it scared him enough to fall of the porch.
