Got a real treat for you today, folks. This might be one of the best videos I’ve posted in a while.

Candy B. of Alberta, Canada, was hunting over a bait pile with her partner James when a pair of black bears started fighting right in front of her stand. Like any good modern sportsman, she grabbed her camera or phone and started recording.

The footage she captured is absolutely incredible. Check it out:

They really lay into each other.

Pretty awesome. And pretty unusual.

According to Wikipedia, “American black bears tend to be territorial and non-gregarious in nature. However, at abundant food sources, black bears may congregate and dominance hierarchies form, with the largest, most powerful males dominating the most fruitful feeding spots.”

That’s definitely what’s happening here. Little do they know that the “winner” has a very good chance of becoming a rug.

At any rate, I hope you folks enjoy it as much as I did.
