Oct 29, 2010: Lunch On The Run
Actually, lunch on the hoof, on the run.
Besides you're 800 lbs now, and that's not politically correct. Setting a bad example for the cubs, you know.
EDIT ~ See post 32 for the whole story.

AND they're both on the wrong side of the road.
SPUCK Friday Oct 29 06:16 AM
That's pretty gross.. Where's my Uzi so I can put them both out of my misery.
Trilby Friday Oct 29 07:16 AM
Could we please have some happy IotDs? I know it's hard to do and a pain and I DO appreciate your efforts, bruce. I DO!

I guess I've got to come out there, and personally make you happy.

Has anyone seen the post around the polar bear coming to play with sleigh dogs as oppossed to ripping them to pieces? I was feeling all warm and fuzzy about that and bears in general. After seeing, this no longer.

Stephen Colbert is right again about bears.

Sort of dining twice on a Bison.

Foot, you're bad.

You have outdone yourself Bruce, jaw dropping good. I am amazed.

That Badass Bear looks as if he's having a great time. A bit of jog and then when he's bored, he'll strike.
Adak Sunday Oct 31 09:39 PM
Any bear that has gone hungry for awhile, or is preparing to hibernate and needs more fat, is a much more aggressive animal.
I've seen video's/pics of two other amazing friendships among animals:
1) The snake that bonded with a mouse or hamster, that was put into his cage, as dinner. The rodent actually rested right on top of the snake's coiled up body.
I'm guessing the snake was enjoying the rodent's extra bit of warmth, but just a guess.
2) Three cheetah siblings ran down a very young Tommy gazelle, licked it's neck and head, and then let it go. Very unusual, indeed.

We had the cheetah pictures here. Turns out they were just tasting that Gazelle in the pictures, they ate it later.

The Daily Mail made up that fairy tale story of the cheetahs letting it go! That's such a blatant lie - but more in character for predators, surely.
xoxoxoBruce Monday Nov 1 06:53 AM
It wasn't just the Mail, those pictures, with the same story, were all over the internet for a week or more, before the photographer came forth with the whole story. Those youngsters were being taught to hunt and didn't quite get it yet. They would catch it and mouth the neck, but didn't have the clamping off the windpipe perfected.

This is fast food at its best.

By the look if its injuries, I dont think the Bison had a chance...in fact, it would probably end up enduring a long miserable death.
xoxoxoBruce Monday Nov 1 04:07 PM
When the buffalo left the herd, his mama said....
Adak Tuesday Nov 2 12:16 AM
The photographer has confirmed that the bison DID "out maneuver" the grizzly and escape - but to no avail. He had to be killed the very next day by the rangers, because his injuries from being burned, were too severe.
HungLikeJesus Tuesday Nov 2 12:18 AM
So the bear just wanted a warm meal?

I learned it from you.
Adak Tuesday Nov 2 04:00 AM
the photographer said the Bison had been burned in one of the area's many hot SPOTS, not hot springs.
His description of the event is here:
xoxoxoBruce Tuesday Nov 2 04:40 AM
Excellent, we love it when a member/reader can point us to the whole story.
SPUCK Tuesday Nov 2 06:20 AM
Yeah, that makes a whole lot more sense to the picture. Thanks Adak.
Griff Tuesday Nov 2 09:18 AM
Thanks Adak! I'm surprised that the bison could out maneuver a grizzly in the woods, although I'd guess the bear is a stronger sprinter so maybe he got gassed on the road catching up and had nothing left when they left the macadam.
Diaphone Jim Tuesday Nov 2 07:16 PM
I'm glad I came back to this IOTD one more time. Bruce's initial introduction was funny, but not necessarily meant to be factual.
Happy Monkey Tuesday Nov 2 07:23 PM
Yeah, when I was interpreting those red areas on its legs as maul wounds, I had a hard time figuring out how it was standing, let alone running. Burning makes more sense.
xoxoxoBruce Wednesday Nov 3 12:56 AM
I couldn't figure out how that buffalo could be mauled that much, both sides, and get away, unless the bear went to wash his hands. They usually don't go wash up until lunch is cooling.
