There are photos of grizzly bear chasing bison & scavenging bison but I am not aware of any photos of fatal bison predation.
The brown bear is an omnivore & most of the bear's meat input derives from scavenging & fishing & to a smaller extent (by in large, some brown bear populations are more predatory) opportunistic predation. Not surprisingly, relating photo & video predation events are few.
The killing summer heat made the moment tensed.. A sloth bear found a water hole to quench her thirst along with her cub..She went for it first, checking the surroundings, unaware that a big male gaur was coming from behind, she mistook him as her cub.
The gaur was too arrogant to share the waterhole with a sloth bear, gave her a soft nudge with his horns. What followed next with the startled bear and the adamant gaur was a series of action scene that gave us something nice to shoot.
