DID YOU KNOW?
In the wild, it is not uncommon to see bears and wolves searching for food in the same areas. As you'll note in the photo above, the bears and wolf fish together in the same creek. However, should a bear decide to take over a wolf kill, it is almost always successful. There is little a wolf can do about it except to slink off and look for an easier meal and most importantly keep out of reach of the bear's lethal claws. The bears do not have many natural enemies, the only one being man.
