Here's a screen capture of the still shot at the start of the video. I added the red arrow to what looks like an odd protrusion from his left hind leg.

If you watch the bull running in the water starting at about .15, he's limping.

Yeah, that was interesting. Could not get his head low enough to use antlers effectively.

That bull was injured by another bull before the grizz found him, he probably wouldn’t of made it too long with all the predators around. I saw a bull bison that had broken his lower rear leg in a fight with another bison last years august And within 2 days the wolves finished him off. Injured animals don’t last long out there.

I was tracking a bull elk track through a hemlock and fir forest on the Cascade elk hunt when I came across this bear. He had heard me cow calling and was waiting for me to step into view at 75 yards. Since I had a bear tag I whacked him. On my way over to where he was laying I nearly tripped over a buried 5x5 bull elk that this bear had killed, partially eaten, then buried. When I got to the bear I found he had a hole in his shoulder and one on his forehead, I assmed from the tussle with the bull elk. It was impressive.

My wife was in the park Friday the 18th and saw that bull dead along the river, with the bear above it in the background "waiting for traffic to clear." She obviously had just missed the entire drama.

Grizzlies are awesome, and the world would be a lesser place without them.

This reminds me why I don't mess with a Griz, unless I am packing my .50 Hawken.

I ran into a grizzly over labor day at 25 yards. She was a smart bear and did an admirable "out of the country" run after I let her know I was behind her. And I definitely was not packing a Hawken, unless Hawken happens to make bear spray. smile

Good deal, but did it get to ride home in a yellow Avalanche?

I'm thankful he was already full of elk meat! LOL.

For real though, this is the one that was waiting for me and could have gotten me if things had gone just a little differently. Buddy alerted me he was hunkered down waiting for me at the other end of a log.

Called this one in and he would have been glad to find me, but it went another direction.

Would be interested whether you know for sure if that's what happened?

I suggested on Facebook, after seeing the video there, that the elk could either have been injured in a fight with another bull (have seen that many times in Yellowstone this time of year) but since bulls tend to be pretty rut-dumb in late September, the bear may also have stalked and grabbed him, then gotten away just before the video.
