Last week, reports (and video) of a grizzly bear in Yellowstone taking down a bull elk and feasting on his kill wound its way through the different social media channels.

This week we get to see two grizzlies fighting over the carcass like two shoppers battling over a TV at Walmart on Black Friday.

We don’t know which grizzly was responsible for the kill. But we do know that both grizzlies believe the elk carcass is rightfully theirs (just like the midnight shoppers at Walmart).

Because, just like Black Friday shoppers, grizzlies don’t believe that “sharing is caring,” one grizzly gets the best of the other grizzly and all the spoils go to the victor.

Hopefully for the bear that lost out, there’s a nice consolation prize downstream.

As for the videographer who captured the footage, he lived. He wasn’t attacked like so many others this season.

“I was able to film 2 Grizzlies fighting over the carcass early this morning.  National Geographic, eat your heart out,” Diver Dave wrote on his YouTube channel.

The footage is spectacular. The sound alone is worth the time to watch.
