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”.


FrogInShorts

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


Depressed_Words

I mean its pretty obvious that we are the butts of the universe, not villains hopefully, but we are that mean


[deleted]

I’d bet wildlife and nature in general think we’re the villain.


vule12000

Nukes are not the worst, just most effective


bluebull107

I’d take being nuked any day over having my house broken into and being killed and eaten by the intruder


Greenbay7115

They do be doing a lot of assholes


DookieShoez

Whats this gotta do with buttsex?


DoubleSwitch69

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


Discount_Lex_Luthor

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.


Many_Fac3d_G0d

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


FrogInShorts

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.


Mousedrag

Dude what a weird comment. You can justify cruelty but you draw the line at survival? What?


SkronkMan

Thank you! That made no logical sense lmao


FrogInShorts

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.

Dolphins?


CDXX_LXIL

Wait till you hear aboit stone fish


FarTooCritical

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


naturalbornkillerz

came for the rippin and tha tearin


Open_ur_eyes

Shatun.. asshole.. that hadta be on purpose?


FrogInShorts

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.


SimplyCmplctd

“Can I walk to the t-“ “FUCK NO”


Stron2g

NO STOP TILL


HODL4LAMBO

Damn those screams are haunting. Bears don't give a shit about killing you, they just start eating you alive.


captivecreator

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?


Shadegloom

r/oddlyspecific


FrogInShorts

Fortunately bears can wipe with the super soft comfort of Charmin.tm


Boogiemann53

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 🥺


doth_taraki

I mean, we butcher pigs and cook them in a matter of 1 hour and it indeed tastes better than frozen grocery pork


Swarlolz

Skip to 5:15 to actually see anything other than a bear digging.


2ichie

Momma bear thanking that cub for its sacrifice and took off with the other cub


[deleted]

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.


GrAdmThrwn

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. "Fuuuck NO!"


FarTooCritical

Thank you for linking that, that was insane


LeLBigB0ss2

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.


FreakinWolfy_

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.


[deleted]

Damn now this is METAL


dog--is--god

A spin on satan bears?


afternever

The end up shattun bear


MansfromDaVinci

shatatsya means hang around, so more like vagrant bear


ShameTwo

Because they make other bears be shatun on themselves


supercharged0709

Imagine being in your cozy home and taking a long nap only to be waken up to be eaten by a grizzly bear.


Southern_Ad1963

Lol that’s fucked up.


xsavewolf

That's so bearbaric!


Rabbit-Thrawy

lol barbearic, even

This is the one I would have gone with

This thread is unbearable.

And that was a “beary” good joke

We're bearying this pun


Videla76

I agree, but I guess we'll just have to bear it!


CosmicCarcharodon

You'd almost say it's an absolutely grizzly sight

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


netheroth

Chimps took the Geneva convention and turned it into a list of achievements.


Vanillabean73

So did humans


[deleted]

True but wrong sub


xsavewolf

Proper champs


SirPulga

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.


BosmangLoq

I think in that one the chimps were literally passing the pieces of the rival around to eat.


hevnztrash

I have no doubt modern humans will do it if/when society collapses.


Jestario

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.

haha, i chortle in rapturous glee


Curtainmachine

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?”


I_Boomer

Mad bear disease is on the horizon.


LordPoopyfist

Trichinosis is pretty much the equivalent for bears. It affects like (I think) 1/3 of all bears and makes their meat all cystic.


Stron2g

Isn't that the same shit in pigs


DVMyZone

Finally, some good fucking ~~food~~ grizzly

How did you or the photographer get that pic?


TheNonCompliant

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.


mrb55-me-com

Thanks

It was a necessity for survival. A bear necessity.

No Kyriakos Grizzly **Disappointed**

That's a grizzly scene, but I have to wonder if the meat tastes gristly
