A large Grizzly Bear attacks a Bald Eagle in Alaska. Grizzly Bears do not regularly hunt bald eagles. This bear may have simply been playing; amusing itself idly rather than actually attempting to hunt.
This is one of the only photos ever of a grizzly bear attacking a bald eagle. This unique image was captured in Alaska, a habitat where both species are found in abundance.
This grizzly bear chasing the bald eagle wears a goofy smile on his face, lending the scene a playful appearance. The bald eagle is much too fast and alert to be captured by a grizzly bear.
Bald eagles are surprisingly large and fierce birds. Eagles are actually observed attacking bears more often than grizzly bears attacking eagles.
