Video: House Cat Stands Down Brown Bear

In one corner of the ring, we have a 400-pound bear who regularly kills moose just for fun. And in the other corner, we’ve got an 8-pound domestic animal that shits in a box.

But this ain’t your run-of-the-mill alley cat, this is Vasya the Mighty: a fearless Russian feline determined to protect its people from a critter 50 times its size.

Some cats get picked up by eagles, some pick fights with bears. Not all cats are created equal.
