Security camera footage from a home in South Lake Tahoe caught two bears squaring off inside a carport.
The resident who owns the camera told NBC Bay Area she heard "strange growling" but didn't expect it would be two bears fighting.
She assumed it was a bear going after a racoon or coyote.
The woman said she see bears around her home frequently, and she's usually able to scare them off easily from her property.
