HEWITT, N.J. (CBS) — A bear was no match for a brave dog who was on the neighborhood watch in New Jersey. Mark Stinziano posted video of the bear chowing down on the birdfeeder in the backyard of his home in Hewitt.

All of a sudden, his neighbor’s dog comes barreling into the yard. He slams into the bear, startling it before the bear ran off.

Stinziano says the dog named Riley checks on his kids every now and then, and is promising to give him a steak for keeping his family safe.
