I think I found scientific proof that skunks are at the top of the food chain. I've seen bears attack wolves, mountain lions, elk and bison and win just about every time. I've never seen a bear successfully take down a skunk including this big guy that got schooled.
I've shared a lot of moments involving bears surprising people, but normally it's not from the Dakotas. That changes now as I have located video from a group of hikers in South Dakota who had a bear scare them off their trail.
When you drive the highways and byways of western America, you never know what wildlife may be joining you on the road. A Montana driver recently shared video of 3 young mountain lions who were booking it down the road alongside him.
I think it's safe to say that there are daily encounters between bears and wolves in Yellowstone. Some we can see, but most we don't. There was one battle a couple years ago that became more famous than most.
When I think of my favorite viral moments from Yellowstone National Park, this is among the best of the best. It's that fun time when a bull elk took a severe dislike to a snowmobile and decided to challenge it (and everything else) to a fight.
If you visit Yellowstone National Park, you are guaranteed to see nature in action. Sometimes you see even more nature than you anticipated. That was the case when a tour group in Yellowstone recently captured video of a wolf chewing on a very large bison bone.
