Grizzly at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming was trapped in her knee when a brave gray wolf tried to bite her on September 23rd.
The bear buried his body on the bank of the river to cover the scent of the decaying corpse, but a few days later the scent of the wolf began to return.
And a brave wolf decided to go to Grizzly to try and steal his snack while grabbing the bear.
In the video, the wolf quietly sniffs the ground next to where the bear is lying.
A grizzly bear in Yumstone National Park, Wyoming, defends the body of a kurka that was killed and buried by a gray wolf.
He glances at the elk and steals it with a few bites of the elk.
The bear lets the interlopper get close before it finally jumps to its feet, and sends the wolf to jump back in fear.
This stand-up almost lasts for about four minutes, as the predatory wolf makes four approaches and is repelled in the same way.
The film said: ‘This wolf was alone so there is no danger of a big fight.
He had one more game to see how close the dominant bear would give him to kill him. My surprise was that he let it get so close.
‘The wolf will slowly get closer, the bear will shift a little from the place, and the wolf will come back a little later. In my view this cycle happened four times. ‘

Grizzly bears are usually extremely protective from their killing and will fight other bears and mammals.
With wolves, offspring are not uncommon as both animals often target the same prey.
Gray wolves mostly prey on large, thriving animals, including deer, mountain goats, and elk.
Grizzly bears have an omnivorous diet, including vegetation, roots and grasses, but are effective predators and prey on newborn elk, moose and deer.
They have a more acceptable diet than carnivorous gray wolves, as they can live on fish, berries, even small rats – and even human waste if available.
