Montana Grizzly is Put to the Test with an Electrified Deer

A persistent and clever grizzly outsmarts a strange experiment to deter his fellow bears.

One researcher in Montana wanted to find out if an electrified deer carcass could serve as a grizzly bear deterrent. The findings weren’t all that surprising: grizzlies are incredibly persistent, if nothing else.

According to the video’s description, “The deer is electrified as an experiment to protect hunters’ game kills and, in turn, to minimize bear-human encounters.”

Watch how it works (or doesn’t) below:

Unorthodox, sure, but it could work. Except, this fearless grizzly is like the honey badger, and the honey badger don’t care if his meal is hooked up to a car battery – he’s gonna eat it anyways.
