On Sept. 4, a visitor at Yellowstone National Park took a video of a gray wolf nipping a grizzly bear in the butt three times. 

Check out the video below:

The man who filmed it wrote on a Yellowstone National Park Facebook page:

“WATCH THIS WOLF BITE A GRIZZLY (3 times). We were watching wolves at Crystal Creek near Slough Creek (YNP) at daybreak when this wolf decided to nip the bear. Crazy wolves, these. September 4, 2021.”
