For the six percent of Americans who think they could fight a grizzly bear, maybe this video will deter them.
Wildlife photographer Brad Josephs captured the beginning, middle, and end of two “giant male” grizzlies battling it out during mating season in Lake Clark National Park.
He called it “the longest, most intense bear interaction I have ever witnessed in my 25 years of guiding on the Alaska peninsula.”
For almost nine minutes — that’s three rounds of boxing without breaks — the two bears bite, swipe, and claw at each other over a female who, according to the video, wasn’t watching.
“This may be the most awesome bear fight ever recorded,” Josephs said in the video. “This is a gift from mother nature.”
