VIDEO: Dog chases bear out of yard

BRADBURY, Calif. – The age-old question of who's the real king of the suburban jungle has finally been answered.

When it comes to backyards, dogs rule... bears drool.

A wayward bear learned the valuable lesson after he wandered out of a forest into the backyard of a home in Bradbury, Calif. 

But the bear became a little too curious and moved too close to the house, which was being guarded by a small dog on the patio.

After a brief stare down, the dog gave chase and the bear hightailed it off the property and onto a children's play area.

With the brouhaha over, the two combatants went their separate ways, with the bear sticking around the neighborhood for a few more hours before finally heading back home in the forest.
