Grizzly Outwits Biologist's Experiment

Nothing can come between a hungry bear and his dinner - not even the risk of an electric shock.

In never before seen footage a grizzly proves smarter than the average bear by stealing an electrified deer carcass from scientists. The bear made light work of an experiment aimed at deterring the animals from hunter’s kills. Wildlife biologist Heather Reich, 39, and her husband, photographer, Derek, 55, have studied bears in Montana, USA, for more than a decade. The couple wired a dead deer up to a fence charger designed to shock bears coming too close to human areas. But the persistent animal showed his capacity for problems solving by disconnecting the battery and making off with the prize.
