You probably think you’re pretty tough, huh? Well, are you as tough as Carl Moore, the 73-year-old California man who punched a bear in the face? Didn’t think so. CBS Sacramento reports that Moore heard his dog whimpering outside, and when he went to see what the problem was, he saw a bear messing with his Chihuahua.
“I ain’t running from nothin’,” Moore says in the video below. “I never have in my whole life, and I ain’t gonna start now.”
Punching the bear was not Moore’s first instinct. “I raised both hands in the air and I cussed at him.” But when that didn’t work, he had to escalate the situation.
“The man or beast that I run from ain’t been born, and its mama’s already dead,” says Moore. Try not to feel too bad about yourself when watching the video below.
