VIDEO: Trail-Cam Footage of Bear Chasing Wild Horses
By Aubrey Irwin | June 28, 2022
Wild horses running through a forest is something everyone would hope to see eventually. However, when a hungry bear is tailing them, that is a less desirable situation you’d want to see. In Canada, it is said that there are less than 2,000 wild horses left. In Montana alone, it’s estimated that there are between 150,000-180,000 wild horses left. Bears can run up to 35 mph, while mustangs can run between 25-30 mph. In the video, the horses have room between them and the bear, hopefully outlasting their predator.
In Alberta, Canada, trail cameras caught the action of a mother grizzly bear chasing after a herd of wild horses. One of the mares has a colt galloping close to its mother, trying to keep up with the rest of the pack. This camera connects to a web of other cameras organized by Help Alberta Wildies Society to document the life and death of the wild horses and bring attention to the threatened population.
