A half-mauled bison flees while a grizzly bear gives chase.

Why did the bison cross the road? To get the hell away from the 800-pound grizzly trying to eat him.  A photo of a half-mauled bison being chased down a Yellowstone park road by a large grizzly bear is authentic, according to park officials.


Yellowstone National Park West District Ranger Michael Keator tells KTVQ channel 2 in Billings, Montana that the photo, which recently began circulating on the web, was taken by a park employee in April 2010, between the Madison Junction and Old Faithful, in the Fountain Flats area of Yellowstone National Park.

What happened after the photo was snapped? We’re not sure. But it probably didn’t end well.
