As the old saying goes, it’s the size of the fight in the dog that counts. And one terrier in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, appears to be a fearless defender of his patch, no matter how big the intruder.

As his family bang pots and pans, and the kids cheer him on, Jersey eventually sends the bear running, and stumbling, back into the woods. Credit: David Jonsson via Storyful
