On the Elk Trail: Episode 5 – Grizzly Bear Trail

Quoting the producers of the video below, “When we placed game cameras on an elk migration corridor near Yellowstone, we found many grizzly bears on the elk trail. Sometimes we were actually hiking in the tracks of grizzly bears, putting us on full alert all the time. The migration trail is alive with elk and deer, and used by all kinds of predators, including coyotes, grizzly bears, wolves, and human hunters.”
