This bear must have been really needing to add some weight prior to the winter.https://youtu.be/Jzo2Ie7B7CI

Yeah, that was a pretty tough way to go. The only elk was really strong to have held the mass of the bear as long as it did. That bear was extremely strong to have pulled it from the river.

Testaments to both of them in there. That that bull could hold that bear up as long as he did, and that the bear could pull the bull back out the river. Dad gum ole Mother Nature can be a cold mistress sometimes, but bears gotta eat too

I am not sure if all of the videos of that were taken by the same guy. The other ones I have seen of that, were of the bear trying to eat the elk, after he killed it. I was wondering how the elk died, because you could not see much of any damage to the elk. Now it's obvious the elk drowned. When the bear was trying to open up the elk to eat it, it had a lot of trouble getting through the hide, he tried probably five spots, before finding a soft spot.

Not to take away from the "scene"

But it looks like the elk has a broken left-rear leg.
You can kinda see the limp as he ambles along in the river.

Wonder if there is more to the story,
i.e. singled out the elk and tussled before hand with elk escaping to river?
