Nothing is more thrilling than watching grizzlies and wolves together in the wild. Ok, maybe that’s an exaggeration but it certainly is a great way to start a wildlife scouting day in Yellowstone National Park. Greg woke me at 4AM to start our excursion into the park.
A reliable source told us that a wolf recently took down an elk near Canyon Village and we anticipated seeing grizzlies there. We arrived at the site minutes before sunrise. The “Breakfast Club” had already arrived. Four grizzlies and two wolves surrounded the carcass, vying for a tasty meal. Surprisingly, even though the wolves delivered the cuisine, they didn’t have the first pickings. The grizzlies begrudgingly shared the meal with them only as they saw fit. At one point, two ravenous grizzlies wrestled each other for a morsel as their guttural growling rumbled across the meadow. Greg captured portions of the episode on the following video.
