Wildlife Camera Crew Captures Epic Bear Fight From Just A Few Feet Away

A wildlife film crew was at a bear blind in Finland when a pair of large bears showed up at the scene and decided to have a big, violent brawl a few meters from hidden spectators and cameras.

“After 45 minutes the bears started to appear, a total of four bears arrived within the 5 hours we were there,” the crew tells PetaPixel. “We would have been happy to have seen a glimpse of a single bear, but oh boy did our expectations get exceeded massively.”

“Two of the bears were pretty much the same size and they started to roar very loudly to each other and moments later they engaged in a fierce brawl,” the crew says. “According to experts, they wouldn’t fight so brutally over food only. It is about the dominance of the area, because females prefer stronger males.”
