Sometimes nature does home delivery. This video was captured by a flabbergasted homeowner as a bear drags down and mauls a deer in his very backyard, reportedly somewhere in Colorado. The young bruin seems to have trouble taking prey that’s almost its own size, but the bear’s enthusiasm makes up for what it lacks in brawn and experience.
Unfortunately for the deer, it could do little more than bleat in panic as the bear bites it in the back of the neck and goes in for a kill. The video cuts off shortly before we see the results of the struggle, but the homeowner said he ended up chasing the bear off the property with a shotgun—possibly because nobody wants a bear having lunch on their lawn and then loitering around afterwards. The fate of the deer is unknown.
Mother nature at its finest!
