Is that footage taken from a lookout tower? What was the loud noise?

This footage was taken from the bridge just outside Tower-Rosevelt on the way into the Lamar Valley - Yellowstone National Park.
 


From the actual youtube link, in the description remarks.

@Whitpirate  show the Duvall bear gal this. They don't hunt and eat meat.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

If it was in Yellowstone I'm surprised nobody jumped down to try and save the calf.

I'm trying to get better and knowing what I'm looking at with bears that one to me looks like a good sized adult?

Nature is awesome. Not the way I want to go, for sure. :yike:

That's why there should be a state wide spring bear season over the counter tag

Bears are responsible for 40% of the fawn and calf mortality, coyotes also responsible for a large percentage, especially during birth.

And I should know this, but my bear ID skills are pretty bad. Is that a grizzly, or a black bear? It looks huge, but I don't see much of a hump, I can't tell whether the face is "dished" or not, and the claws seem to be relatively short compared to a grizzly's. So I would have said "black" - but open to correction by folks that know better.
