Grizzly Bear with Kill on Banks of Yellowstone River
Early June in Yellowstone is calving season for the buffalo and hunting season for the grizzly bears. I found a grizzly bear with an hours old kill in the Hayden Valley, on the banks of the Yellowstone River. After taking his fill, he took a dip in the river and rested next to his kill.
