Death of a Sow

 First off a WARNING!  These are graphic images.  This is nature raw and uncut.  I have been sitting on these photos since June, unsure of what to do with them, after many requests to see them I finally decided to post at least some of them here.


There are some experiences that will stay with a person forever, this for me was one of those.  On a sunny evening in June, I followed the meandering Phillips Arm shoreline in search of a grass-grazing Grizz, a common sight on these wild shores.  Upon rounding the point into a small bay I immediately spotted what I’d been searching for, only for now the grass grazing had been forgotten in a vicious fight to the death.  I idled the boat in the deep water just offshore, unable to do anything but bear witness to the death of a sow.
