Picture of grizzly chasing down a bison

Post by WQ Coordinator » Mon Nov 15, 2010 1:41 pm

Did anyone else see this yet? It's amazing! I can only imagine what it would have been like to take the picture while two humongous and intimidating animals are running toward you at top speed. This was at Yellowstone National Park.

Wow, this picture is amazing!
I wouldn't know what to think if I saw these massive animals coming towards me.
It's a nice picture, and just shows how much power these animals really have.
Thanks for sharing Cana!^^

Those are great pictures, what a coicidence.
You don't see things like that everyday, well, where I live you don't anyways.
It would be pretty nervracking seeing two big animals rushing towards you like that, the guy must be pretty brave at that. I probably would have watched the site, but wouldn't have been able to take pictures. xD [DUCK!]

Whoa, thats a pretty interesting image there! I would never think that a bear would be chasing off a bison, so its quite remarkable to see something like this (Alex, who took the image did a fantastic job of that!). Must of been quite a thrill for that to happen. Thanks for sharing this awesome image, Cana!

Wow - that's really amazing! I would probably run the other way. :3

It is too bad the bison was caught later and put down...though I suppose it was for its benefit. It wouldn't have survived long being burned like that.

Amazing!
I don't know what I'd do if I was behind the camera. Run for my life would probably be the first thing that comes to mind.
Sad that the bison got put down though, it was probably for the better, it wouldn't have lasted long.

Wow, shots like that are amazing! You don't see something like that everyday~

Poor bison though. Those burns were bad if he was missing the fur from his legs; amazing that he even escaped the bear. But then to be put down, I guess it was for the better, as everyone else has said.

Thanks for sharing, Cana^^

Those are some amazing photos - the photographer must have been lucky to get those shots! It's quite incredible that the grizzly was chasing the bison; it isn't something you see everyday.

If the camera was in my hands there would be no picture because I would have already dropped it and high-tailed it out of there for sure. (:

Certainly quite a picture, though! The scene is amazing, but what's even more amazing is the courage that the photographer had to take the shot.
