Caught on video: Bears battling tooth and claw on family’s front lawn


Two furry foes in New Jersey settled their differences with their bear hands.

A Sussex County man caught two black bears wrestling each other in a furious brawl in his front yard last week, a video that has since gone viral shows.

Corey Bale, of Frankford Township, recorded only 24 seconds of the May 3 fight before heading inside his home for safety.

The video, which has more than 500,000 views on Facebook, shows two massive bears pushing, biting and wrestling each other just few feet from the door.

“Right in the front yard. Holy s—,” Bale is heard saying in the expletive-filled clip.

The man told NJ.com he found blood and chunks of bear hair in the yard after the animals left. He said the clash was likely over a female bear that was behind his shed.

Black bear sightings are common in the Garden State as the weather gets warmer. The state Department of Environmental Protection warns residents to stay away from the animal if they see one, properly secure their garbage and not leave food unattended outside their homes.

New Jersey’s black bear population has increased since the 1980s and expanded to all of its 21 counties, according to the agency.
