There’s nothing like a good animal fight, and I’ve posted quite a few of them over the years. Whitetail vs. whitetail, elk vs. elk, sometimes even bear vs. bear.

Almost all of them have one thing in common: the fight is between members of the same species. Which makes today’s video all the more unique.

How many times have you seen an elk and a bison going at it?

They’re not exactly fighting tooth and nail, but it’s cool to see two different species sparring like this.

The elk looks like the aggressor here, but I have to imaging that if the bison got serious, he could wreck his opponent.

Who would you put your money on?
