Bear Vs Bison: A Yellowstone Rundown

These amazing photos came from Yellowstone National Park where a wounded bison was running for its life from a hungry grizzly.

I shot the same 2009 video as the first commenter. I was there that day, as was about 300 other tourist. Just at dark. However during the one confrontation I saw the buff chased the big grizzly off. It was an awesome sight.

I have a video I shot in 09 of a monster buff and a big big griz fighting in Yellowstone. It was dusk, very very cool. You can see it on you tube.

This story and photos are great. It really pays to always have a camera on you. I can't believe the pics in a few it looks like the animals are floating, caught in mid stride.

I mean the bear versus bison is really cool. I don't think I could have stood there and took the picture and that pair was charging towards me. lol

What a rare experience that would be! What luck to have your camera with as well! That, in my opinion, would be a hard story to believe if i had heard it without seeing proof!

Even being injured that Bison is still moving pretty quick. Pretty sure a charging Grizzly with its mouth open could bring out the Carl Lewis in all of us. Great pics.

#7 is the awesomest picture ever. The bear is in mid-air with mouth open waiting to tear into the meaty, steam boiled buffalo. lol

Great find! It must have beem thrilling to witness this race! Glad the buffalo won initially, too bad it was so injured it had to be put down, but nature isn't always cute and cuddly.

I always thought a grizzly had tremendous speed over shorter distances. It surprises me that the bison could maintain its lead. Perhaps the chase had been long and sustained which played to the bisons strength in spite its injuries.

The Bison should be careful its running on the wrong side of the road it could be hit by a car. Kidding aside great pictures

Even though "The situation seemed safe enough because the animals were moving so quickly and showed no interest in him" he STILL showed a LARGE amount of common sense (which is SORELY lacking in people, it seems) by getting back into his car while they ran past!! Some people might have just stood there, and the bear might have decided to change his menu selection!!

Unbelieveable! Great pictures. It's amazing to see these two magnificent animals exist the way they did hundreds of years ago and to be able to see the awesome roles of predator and prey in its best depiction.
