A wildlife photographer in Canada’s Yukon Territory has compiled video footage that shows grizzly bears and black bears wandering away from his trail cameras.
“Bear butts!” David Troup, of Yukon Wildlife Cams, wrote this month on Facebook. “[The] 2021 compilation also offers a great size comparison between grizzlies and black bears, and even a blond black bear.”
The footage shows bear butts in varying degrees of motion as the animals explore the wilderness.
It’s worth noting that Troup’s page also features footage of bears traveling toward his cameras, including a large grizzly bear that is shown charging to within feet of a camera, revealing the bruin’s awesome power and enormous claws.
In the “Bear butts” clip, Troup told For The Win Outdoors that the footage is from three cameras and that every bear is a different animal.
“The first two are very likely a male grizzly pursuing a female,” Troup said. “I’ve got these two on a pair of cameras pointing in opposite directions the trail – so a coming-and-going perspective, though I’ve only ever shared them separately.”
Troup places motion-sensor cameras at strategic location each season and posts footage to his page sporadically throughout each year.
