    Grizzly Bear Versus Wolf

    I guess we've all had enough of the Supreme Court for one day, so I figured it's time to watch some video of the antics of some furry fuzzy creatures in the wild.

    This is video shot in Glacier National Park showing a sow grizzly bear and 2 cubs contesting the "ownership" of an elk carcass with a gray wolf. It's a stationary camera, so the animals sometimes run out of view. The video is about 5 minutes long.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    The wolf actually looked like he was just having a good time...

    It's always interesting to watch animal behavior when humans aren't present, thanks for posting that. I keep a game cam out year around and bait the area once a week with a bucket of corn. I like to look at the pictures and see what passed by and ate together.

    To me the wolf was wanting to play with the cubs. I remember watching our dog play with her puppies when they got bigger. The wolf and our dog had a lot of the same moves, postures, mannerism's, etc. that demonstrated a playful mode. OTOH Mama bear wasn't interested in the play, though she wasn't as aggressive as I would have guessed, to me she just wanted the wolf to keep a larger buffer from the cubs.

    I got a laugh at the wolf easing up close enough to actually nip at one of the cubs.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Very cool. The wolf appears to be wagging his tail he is having so much fun.

    Great video. It's fun to see wild animals in the wild, without human intervention. There aren't many places where this can be seen.

    Though, if momma bear weren't there, I'm sure it would change fairly quickly. After all, the carcass was no longer there.
