Grizzly Bear Battles 4 Wolves

This amazing footage shows the moment a young grizzly bear faced off with a pack of wolves in a desperate attempt to scavenge some food.

Wolves are social, hunting in packs, while bears prefer a solitary life. The wolf has a biting capacity of 1,000 to 1,500 pounds of pressure per square inch. The Grizzly Bear has a bite that can be up to 1200 pounds per square inch, and also has a thick hide and huge, sharp claws.

The Grizzly Bears and Wolves have coexisted for millennia, but they rarely interact in the wild, generally preferring to avoid each other. But when food is low, these apex predators must compete for survival in the harsh North American winter.

A carcass on the side of a river makes the perfect scavenged meal, and both the wolves and grizzlies know this. But can a single grizzly stand up to a whole pack of wolves?

The inexperienced grizzly is hungry enough to risk it all for some scraps.

In the end, the bear proves his strength, and the wolves must allow him to join them for dinner. Watch how it went down the amazing footage below…
