Wildlife photographer Deby Dixon was in Yellowstone observing a large herd of elk grazing in Hayden Valley when a dumb grizzly bear made an ill-fated attempt to sneak up on all of them at once.

The bear comes dashing down the hill with nary an ounce of stealth, alerting each and every elk to its presence before it stops——in full view of the herd——to look for a weak elk to pick off.

Predictably, the herd runs away, leaving the grizzly with nothing.



The “hunt” is so ill-fated that I have to wonder if the bear was actually just trying to move the herd away from a feeding area or a fresh kill.

The bear doesn’t look particularly thin or desperate.

I don’t know. What do you think?
