"My child Hailey Moriniconiconii just saved our dog with superhuman strength. For me one of the scariest moments in life."

Well, now the teen has spoken up about the event...​

Hailey, 17, said she felt like she had to act before something terrible could've happened.

"It is lifting her off the ground, and if I don't do something about it, who knows what might happen to her."

Her maternal instincts for the pup, named Valentina, made her race towards the bear...

​"She's the baby in the family we go everywhere with her, (I) couldn't bear to lose her or have anything happen to her," Morinico said about her dog," Hailey said.

Hailey recounted the event in a TikTok video.

"I hear the dogs barking, and when I go to see what they're barking at, I'm like that's a funny looking dog." the teen says in the video.

"She is the baby, and as her slave, I have to protect her."​

"I go over to the bear, I look it in the eyes, and the first thing I think to do is push. Push that bear.

"I didn't even push her that hard, just enough to make her lose her balance."

Well the internet went crazy for the whole thing...
