Grizzly outsmarts deterrent.

I don’t know if this grizzly bear is one of the smartest animals I’ve ever seen, or if it just got incredibly lucky. This group set up an electrified deer carcass as an experiment on protecting hunters’ game kill and, at first, it certainly prevented the bear from eating the carcass. But it doesn’t quite work forever.

A Montana grizzly bear attempts to retrieve an electrically charged, road-killed deer. The deer is electrified as an experiment to protect hunters’ game kills and, in turn, to minimize bear-human encounters.

The grizzly bear must’ve hit the battery on accident, removing the power to the carcass. That, or the bear understands how electricity works on a much deeper level than I ever thought was possible. Either way, clearly this deterrent doesn’t work too well.
