We've all seen plenty of cats protecting themselves or their territory from dogs. But this cat's encounter with a bear lets you know just how tenacious felines can be.

The young bear, curious about what this small furry creature is and maybe trying to determine if it's a friend, foe or food, doesn't even get a chance to find out. The cat in no uncertain terms has already made the decision the bear is foe and cats are kings.

This gutsy cat does what most humans wouldn't when encountering a bear, fight rather than flight. To each their own, but I would much rather put as much distance between me and the bear as possible.
