Mother Bison Tries To Defend Her Dead Calf From Hungry Coyote In Yellowstone National Park

A large animal and a small pig in a field

Yellowstone is not for the faint of heart.

Surely one of the most breathtaking places in the United States, and even the entire world, Yellowstone National Park is simply incredible. The stunning views, the wildlife, Old Faithful… it’s a vast land of endless beauty and wonder.

It’s also brutal and unforgiving… especially when it comes to the wildlife. Bears, elk, wolves, bison… all vying for survival. It’s cruel out there and not everybody wins…

In this intense showdown, a mother bison does her best to defend her young calf’s body from a hungry coyote, but eventually, the burden of protecting her deceased calf became to much to bear.

However, one animal’s death becomes another’s meal… the circle of life on full display.

Cue the Uncle Lucious…
