Bear Mounts Attack On Cow Moose While Sneaky Wolf Goes For Her Calf

Moose bear fight with wolf

When it comes to nature, we often think of bears and wolves to be some of the most dangerous predators in all of the wild.

However, we typically see these two as rivals of one another, and we hardly ever see them working together.

But, if there was ever one exception, this is it.

Last month, the Alaska Department of Fish & Game (ADF&G) shared trail camera footage on Facebook of a massive brown bear attacking a female moose in southeast Alaska.

In the footage, you can see a mother moose walking alongside her calf, when all of a sudden the brown bear pops up and begins to attack, as the mother tries her best to fight back.

She immediately rears up and starts throwing her powerful front kicks, a moose’s best weapon.

However, as the bear attacks the mother, a crafty wolf pops up out of nowhere and chases down the calf.

Absolute genius move by the wolf who waits for the bear to do the heavy lifting while it sneaks in and takes down the calf.

The caption to the video reads:

“Prey and predators collide in this trail camera clip captured by remote camera near Gustavus in Glacier Bay National Park during an ADF&G wolf predation study.

This camera was perfectly positioned along a popular animal travel corridor, giving us a front-row seat to Mother Nature’s drama.”

It’s pretty rare that we get to see a bear and wolf attacking near simultaneously on footage, but lucky for us this was all caught on trail cam.

Unlucky for us, they didn’t give us the full video, and we don’t know how the attack ended, but it didn’t look good for the moose calf.
