Mama Bear Attacks Fawn While Cubs Watch From Tree
Occurred on July 17, 2017 / Woodland Park, Colorado, USA
Info from Licensor: "Six weeks before this video was shot, we watched these fawns being born. As they got older, they would jump in and out of our yard, with mama leaving them in the deep grass until she returned to feed them. This particular afternoon, we spotted a sow and cubs in the bottom of our yard. The cubs were playing in a tree and Mama bear was down below, hidden from our view from our deck, 14 feet off the ground. After about 15 minutes, one of the fawns got up and started walking down towards the area where the bears were. That's when Mama Bear made her presence known and chased the fawn until she caught it. We tried to distract the bear so the fawn could jump out, be she panicked and became a meal for the Mama Bear and her three cubs. The Bears stayed the rest of the afternoon, then wandered away from us back up on the mountainside."
