Bear Chasing Bison down the road

Run Forrest!
It must be a surreal moment in your life. You're minding your business driving along the road  thinking of how you like twinkies and then suddenly a haggard looking bison runs past you with that look of 'don't look back he might be gaining' all over his face. And what might be gaining? A lumbering grizzly bear, with eyes on the prize. The prize being bison steak...

One lucky picture snapper Alex Wypyszinski was driving along the road in the state of Montana's Yellowstone National Park when he heard what he initially thought was a horse-and-carriage.

"I've seen plenty of bear and more buffalo, but I've never seen anything like that before," he said. Lucky for Animals Eating Animals, he pulled out his camera and snapped these pretty unique images!

If you look closely at the picture, the bison was badly burned, quite possibly from one of the numerous hot springs and geysers in Yellowstone. It was that weakness that probably emboldened the grizzly bear to try to tackle such a strong animal as a bison in the first instance. Nature at its finest.

And Bye!
 The news report suggested that the bison managed to escape the bear's jaws but that due to its injuries and general condition, Yellowstone Park Rangers decided it was in the animal's interest to be put down.

Bears are quite the news makers in recent times, this Russian bear ate some pigs, while this one when the whole hog and ate some campers. Not to forget the menace that polar bears can be! When they are not eating each other that is!
