Griz snatching goat caught on film

A West Glacier filmmaker caught dramatic footage of a grizzly bear hunting and killing a kid mountain goat at a mineral lick on the east side of Glacier National Park. Sumio Harada said he spent June 21 filming the goats at the lick, which is on a slope several hundred feet away from a cliff face. It was a windy day, and he didn’t get much footage.
