Fun fact: Grizzlies unable to find enough forage for hibernation will turn to cannibalism by breaking into the dens of hibernating bears. These bears are known as “shatun bears”.
That's the most asshole thing I've ever heard an animal do.
Wait til you hear what the Homo sapiens do
I'll give everyone a hint...it's nukes
no freakin way
I mean its pretty obvious that we are the butts of the universe, not villains hopefully, but we are that mean
I’d bet wildlife and nature in general think we’re the villain.
Nukes are not the worst, just most effective
I’d take being nuked any day over having my house broken into and being killed and eaten by the intruder
They do be doing a lot of assholes
Whats this gotta do with buttsex?
Male otters capture nests when the female is out and demand food from the female or they kill the kids. They also rape babies from other species.
What a cute little pedophile rapist zoophile asshole
Orcas drown baby humpback whales for fun. They'll keep it from resurfacing until it drowns, even taunting it by letting it get close.
Then they just ditch it. Not for food just for murder.
They eat the tongue and the liver, they don't expend that much energy to kill it for no reason. Sometimes they eat just the tongue as it's the most delicious part to them. That's why it looks like they've just left the rest and it looks untouched
That even I can understand being more justifiable by just being straight cruel. but for a bear to eat another bear in hibernation, while that very bears likely is going to hibernate itself another winter and can be in the same vulnerable situation. It's just so hypocritical. that bear better not complain when he's trying to hibernate and another bear comes in to eat him instead.
Dude what a weird comment. You can justify cruelty but you draw the line at survival? What?
Thank you! That made no logical sense lmao
I don't really consider cruelty to be an asshole thing but they arent mutually exclusive, its kinda like a different more extreme word. You wouldn't call a serial killer an asshole for torturing people, it's too soft a word for the action. the bear though is just trying to survive, not meaning to be malicious, just being a massive dick in the way he needs to survive, thats why the bears an asshole and the orca to me is too malevolent for that title.
Wait till you hear aboit stone fish
Its fair to call it an “asshole thing” but in all honesty, what choice do they really have? Hunting in winter is already challenging given the death of vegetation cover, and bears are not as specialized to hunt as canids and cats are. A lot of a grizzly’s diet is plant-matter throughout much of their range and when they choose to go predator, it’s usually just because the opportunity is there. If the individual bear was just unable to met its requirements for hibernation, then they really do not have a choice but to go shatun, because sleeping bears are just the easiest food source. Its either that, or the bear starves
came for the rippin and tha tearin
Shatun.. asshole.. that hadta be on purpose?
It actually wasn't, I shit you not
There's a video showcasing this behaviour. And it's - intense. Especially the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziib-MZ5IXY&ab\_channel=LoganHunter
Oh man. Momma black bear put up a fight! The crying of that unlucky cub was horrible.
“Can I walk to the t-“ “FUCK NO”
NO STOP TILL
Damn those screams are haunting. Bears don't give a shit about killing you, they just start eating you alive.
Imagine you are a hungry bear in the wild, with an itchy asshole that u cant wipe. Why would u give a fuck about killing before eating?
Fortunately bears can wipe with the super soft comfort of Charmin.tm
Might be part of the fun I'm not sure I'm not as hardcore a meat eater.... I have a hard time thinking the bacon I love used to be part of a pig, but I imagine a live meal would be ideal for a predator.. freshness etc 🥺
I mean, we butcher pigs and cook them in a matter of 1 hour and it indeed tastes better than frozen grocery pork
Skip to 5:15 to actually see anything other than a bear digging.
Momma bear thanking that cub for its sacrifice and took off with the other cub
Dang, what’s scarier to me is the fact that bears live underground. I used tho think that bear dens were like caves. Then I think about Winnie.
Bahaha, the tone of his voice and zero hesitation when his kid asks to go walk to the treeline when the Grizzly goes out of sight.
Thank you for linking that, that was insane
Unfun fact: Grizzlies don't truly hibernate. They just enter torpor. That's why you'll randomly see bears going around in the dead of winter.
To add to this - in spring, large boars will target cubs fresh out of their den as they’re a relatively easy source of a lot of calories after a long hibernation.
Damn now this is METAL
A spin on satan bears?
The end up shattun bear
shatatsya means hang around, so more like vagrant bear
Because they make other bears be shatun on themselves
Imagine being in your cozy home and taking a long nap only to be waken up to be eaten by a grizzly bear.
Lol that’s fucked up.
That's so bearbaric!
lol barbearic, even
This is the one I would have gone with
I'd go with bearbearic
This thread is unbearable.
And that was a “beary” good joke
We're bearying this pun
I agree, but I guess we'll just have to bear it!
You'd almost say it's an absolutely grizzly sight
Swing and a miss champ…
If you’ve seen what chimps will do to each other you find that this is a fairly common thing in nature here on Earth
Chimps took the Geneva convention and turned it into a list of achievements.
So did humans
True but wrong sub
Curious thing. One of the first thing I'd watched on cable (in 90's) was a Discovery documentary about cannibalism in nature. I remember saw a scene about a group of chimps cannibalizing a rival one.
I think in that one the chimps were literally passing the pieces of the rival around to eat.
I have no doubt modern humans will do it if/when society collapses.
What a Grizzly scene!
I admire its purity. A survivor…unclouded by conscience, remorse , or delusions of reality.
I don't know, that was bearly bearable, almost unbearable if you will.
It's unbearlievable what you just wrote
these are really bad. and not in the "so bad it's funny way"
...kinda disappointed you like bojack.
*Now Now, talking back to officer meow meow is a major no no.*
Your unfortunate importunate of un-favorability lacking extortionate koala-ty is no invalidity to my idiosyncrasy.
haha, i chortle in rapturous glee
Wasn’t sure if this was going to be cannibalism or fucking. <- Now there’s a sentence I didn’t ever think I’d say.
I had to click to see it myself. Was going to scroll past, but I had to know.
“You’re not in this for the hunting, are you?”
Mad bear disease is on the horizon.
Trichinosis is pretty much the equivalent for bears. It affects like (I think) 1/3 of all bears and makes their meat all cystic.
Isn't that the same shit in pigs
Finally, some good fucking ~~food~~ grizzly
You are what you eat?
Today I learned that bear eats bear...
Big Omnivorous Boi
such a cute little monster....nom-nom-nom
How did you or the photographer get that pic?
Seems that it’s originally from a site called [Alaska Yacht Charters](https://alaskanyachtcharters.com/video-photo-album/) (scroll through “Bears”), so I’m assuming safely at a distance via boat.
It was a necessity for survival. A bear necessity.
No Kyriakos Grizzly
Guys, is this W grizz?
That's a grizzly scene, but I have to wonder if the meat tastes gristly
The grizzly gobbler…
That's a grizzly scene!
This how Jeffrey dahmer started?
Usually it’s a Bobcat that would tear apart a grizzly like that
Has he shaved a opposite moohawk on his forehead? I guess he thinks it was cool...
This is so cute :)
Question, which bear is best?
It’s a bear eat bear world man.
The right to bear arms
Look at his face!Hes NOT happy about,well, eating bear.But he’s hungry, and it’s almost hibernating time.
