Alaskan wildlife officials released captivating footage showing the encounter between a bear, a wolf, and a moose with her calf. The footage was captured in early July at Glacier Bay National Park. We have to say this sounds like something straight out of a movie. Bears and wolves are both predators, with bears often poaching food from wolves.
Watching the video, you can see the brown bear approaching the moose and her calf. Sensing the incoming threat, the moose lunges at the bear and initiates the tense confrontation. As the moose and bear battle, a stealthy wolf rushes at the distracted moose calf. Talk about cashing in on the opportunity of a lifetime.
This entire video raises a lot of questions about this encounter. Did the bear and wolf come up with a gameplan before coming across the moose? Were the moose and calf able to escape without injury? Was this a one-time team up between the bear and wolf, or are they regular partners? And most importantly, what are the chances of bears and wolves signing a peace treaty to terrorize the world together?
One answer we have is that wildlife in Alaska is on a whole other level. A level that is scary as hell.
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game for the Southeast shared this epic video. The officials describe it as a “rare glimpse into a dramatic encounter between predator and prey.” The camera responsible for capturing this footage was placed along a popular animal travel corridor.
