This is interesting footage caught on a remote cam in Glacier National Park. A lone wolf interacting with a grizzly mom and two cubs. Cool sounds captured as well.

[edit to add] There's nothing too violent or 'gross' for those that are upset by that kind of thing.

That wolf was just looking for a playmate! :)

ya dunno wanna mess with mama.....that bear can run 40 miles an hour...for maybe as long as the wolf. Wolves are very sociable animals and that one obviously did not have a mate...it appears young and wanted to play. Where wolves have not been exposed to the bad side of the human, they seem very friendly....the bear sensed an outside presence and may have smelled the presence of humans left over from setting up the cameras..

Tim..if I were you I wouldn't bet my life on it....a bear will track a human, and remain out of sight...I was tracking a big male in Alaska, and was very careful......but not careful enough...luckily I caught it in time or mama would have been sharpening her teeth on my bones....

Enjoyed that Paul, thanks for posting it.

A few years ago I watched a young bull elk chasing a whitetail doe accross a hillside for about a half mile. I think he was looking for a 'playmate' as well. Poor doe was runnin for all she was worth!
