Jack, a 15lb (7kg), (declawed!) ginger tabby is a trifle possessive of his yard in West Milford, New Jersey.
A neighbor discovered Jack sitting on the ground regarding a black bear perched high above in a tree. She first thought Jack was merely watching. But when that bear tried to descend 15 minutes later, to her astonishment, the feisty house cat ran him right up another tree.
Jack’s owner had to call him into the house in order to allow the terrified bruin to make a hasty escape.
“He doesn’t want anybody in his yard,” said proud owner Donna Dickey.
