VIDEO: Wolf Watches Roaring Grizzlies Have Disagreement on Road

Bearfight in BC

In this dramatic video uploaded to Facebook shows a pair of grizzly bears fighting on a roadway -- while a wolf cautiously watches!  All of the requisite roaring into one another's face, shoving, and almost biting, is included.  

Whatever it was over, the argument goes back and forth across the roadway which, luckily, is devoid of other drivers except for the person who filmed the video. 

But where it really gets interesting is when, about 30 seconds into the video, a wolf emerges from the treeline further down the road.  He pauses and watches the fight from a safe remove because, heck, it's a pretty good show.

Though we don't know for sure from the video what happens next, it seems that one of the bears has managed to intimidate the other.  One flees, with the other in pursuit.  It could have gone a whole lot worse. 

As for the wolf, we bet he went back to the world sports bar and got a couple of free beers off of the story: "you'll never believe what I saw!"

Are the bears fighting over territory or mating rights or what? Why do bears fight and when they fight is there a winner and a loser acknowledged or do they fight to the death? I find this intriguing.

They usually fight over mating rights and sometimes territory. But fighting is a last resort and one usually backs down before it gets too out of hand. They do not usually fight to death.

This was filmed on Highway 37A near Stewart BC. I believe there was a dead animal in the ditch (ie food) that they were fighting over.

I was driving that stretch of highway literally the day before this occurred, and I saw one grizzly bear butt flying into the bushes my whole trip! Would have loved to have seen this crazy scene… from the safety of my car that is!
