They say dog is man’s best friend, but this Florida man took the saying to a whole new level when he fought off a bear on his porch, all to protect his beloved pup.
Walter Hickox, of Daytona Beach, could be seen on his Ring doorbell camera security footage jumping between a bear and his dog before physically fighting the wild animal off, and fencing off his porch with a bench.
Hickox told Inside Edition that the first thing he noticed when he saw the bear on his porch was that it was fixated on his dog.
“The line of focus [was] between the bear’s eyes and my dog,” he explained. “I wanted to break that focus, get my body into there to let the dog get back into the house.”
