VIDEO: Playful Yellowstone Grizzly LOVES the Snow!
September 18, 2021
In this joyful video filmed in Yellowstone Park, a passerby was surprised to look down into a creek bottom and find a female grizzly playing in the snow.
The person who filmed the video describes what happened: "The video was taken on Monday on the Eastside of Yellowstone National Park. The Grizzly was down on a creek bottom just playing around so I stopped and videoed her." It's worth noting that the video was filmed in early May, so there's a good chance that bear's just woke up from a very long nap.
She also seems remarkably intent on biting her feet, a goal she pursues successfully for nearly the entire video. But there's also something about it all that reminds of making snow-angels. The sheer, simple pleasure of lying in snow and having a little frolic is a pretty universal feeling.
