FRANKFORD TOWNSHIP -

Spring was in the air when a New Jersey homeowner found two black bears battling in his yard.

Corey Bale says he went outside to investigate after a neighbor told him there was a bear behind his Frankford Township home.

But when he stepped outside, he heard a commotion out front and that's when he saw two bruins engaged in a fight.

Bale videotaped the bears, as he said he could hear their jaws hitting together as they wrestled.

Chunks of hair covered in blood were left behind after they stopped tussling.

Bale believes the bears were fighting over the third bear, a female.

AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
