Tourists Get Insanely Close To Grizzly Bear Chowing Down On Elk Carcass At Grand Teton National Park

Grand Teton National park

Every day, nearly a million people file into the various national parks around the country, and every day, there’s inevitably a number of morons in the bunch.

You’ve seen the idiots of Yellowstone, but this group comes to us from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

Part of the thrill of going to a national park is encountering nature in a way that you never have before. Grizzly bears, bison, elk, wolves, deer… you can see a wide variety of species in parks like Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Rocky Mountain National Park, but the number one thing to keep in mind is safety.

Most parks recommend that you stay at least 100 yards from grizzly bears…. yeah, a hundred yards, the size of a football field. Why? Because if a bear decides to charge you, it’ll be on your ass in a hurry.

And when you bears get EXTRA protective? Around their cubs and… food.

Like a delicious elk carcass.

This bear in particular drew quite the crowd along the side of the road, and lucky for them, it was too focused on the kill to pay much mind to the growing crowd.

But with a number of children outside of the vehicles, it’s not hard to see why this video might make someone knows a thing or two about grizzly bear behavior a little uneasy.

“Some might think that this griz would be too occupied to care about the tourons, but this is probably one of the most dangerous positions to be in.

Grizzly Bears become very protective when it comes to their food, he might think that these people are a threat and it would take him literally seconds to reach one of these tourons!”

Keep your distance folks… or maybe just stay in the car.
