VIDEO: Grizzly Bear Takes Down Bull Elk in the Yellowstone River

SnowBrains |

At first light this morning I pulled over noting a Bull Elk with a few cows in the upper right of the meadow depicted in the opening photograph. I was startled moments later by a Bull Elk running into the Yellowstone River pursued by a large Grizzly Bear.

The Grizzly was successful in taking down the Bull Elk after only a few minutes, but it worked for around half an hour to redirect it to the far side of the river and secure it on the east bank, about one-hundred yards downstream from the north end of Hayden Valley.
