Moose chased by a grizzly at fatal bear attack site.

Bear biologist and Host of Tooth and Claw Podcast, Wes Larson, was at Soda Butte Campground inside Montana’s Custer Gallatin National Forest where he planned to investigate the site of a fatal bear attack back in 2010 where a camper was pulled out his tent and eaten by a grizzly bear when he got quite a surprise:

“I was near the campground this week so I decided to check it out late one evening. The campground was deserted and the gate was unlocked so I drove in. On the other side of the campground I saw the dark shape of a moose in the trees, so I moved closer to capture it with my camera. Turns out I wasn’t the only one watching the moose…

After the interaction was over and the unsuccessful bear grazed on clover in a field nearby, I checked the site number where the chase had just unfolded. It was Site 26, the very same location of the fatal mauling 14 years ago.” –Wes Larson
