Aug. 16 (UPI) -- A visitor to an Alaska campsite captured video of the moment a mother black bear attacked her Siberian husky and the dog was able to drive the predator away.
A video posted to YouTube by Tom Henderson shows the mother black bear charging at the dog next to its owner's camper at a family campsite at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
The bear and husky get into a brief fight off-camera and Henderson's wife can be heard yelling at the bruin to get away.
The bear runs off into the woods with her three cubs after just a few moments. The husky appears in frame a few seconds later, showing it was unharmed by the encounter.
Henderson said the dog was not injured and did not require veterinary care.
He said the same bear wandered into a residence a few days after the incident and was put down by authorities.
