Momma Elk Saves Baby From Predator Bear Cub

We’ve said it a thousand times and we will say it a thousand more - never mess with a mother’s love! A visitor at the End of the World in the Coconino National Forest in Arizona got up close and personal with Mother Nature recently.

A very touching moment was caught on camera by a couple of visitors in the national park. At first they thought they were watching an adolescent bear cub rummaging for food in a bunch of fallen branches, as a female elk approaches it. As the cub swings its paw through the branches, a baby elk screams in terror, frightened by the predator in front of it.

The cub notices the mother and climbs the nearby tree for a moment, but as the mother walks back, the bear climbs down and makes a second attempt for its prey. The laws of nature are cruel, and the evolution of species is something that we have to accept as it is! No matter how much we think that baby animals are cute, they can be mean and cruel with their preys, because that is how the system works! Fortunately, in this clip, we saw nature in its finest!

Watch as the mother makes a jump for her baby's life and kicks the bear in the muzzle, scaring it off just enough for the calf to make a run for it! Such a heartwarming and brave moment!

It is not unheard of for a bear to hunt elk when winter is just around the corner. Where food is scars, bears, especially grizzlies, have been known to hunt down the young of bigger animals, such as elk and bison, to survive the harsh weather.
