This video was posted to a Yellowstone Facebook page I follow. It angered a lot of people that the photographer set up a camera and moved the carcass a few feet. Some of those people make good points but they are the same ones that form flocks around animals on the roadside. Isn't that more detrimental to the well being of the animals?

Yes, I agree. Moving the carcass to get a better angle which in turn will produce better video as an educational tool is worth it. Now if he captured a grizzly wading out into the water and swearing, "Damn it, who moved the carcass 20 yards!" then I'd have a problem with it.

Some people object to virtually anything. Someone would object to placing a camera near a carcass since they feel it may impact wildlife's life. Of course, they'd never know about the photos if they didn't have a computer and use electricity -- which has absolutely no impact on anything :oops

Ah heck, that's nothing that I would object to. Those are great shots in one beautiful landscape that could only ever be obtained with a camera trap. It's great to see other like minded people doing what most of us here love to do.

The ones who make noise about something like this are usually folks who are nature-ignorant. If they knew what it was really like in the wilderness they'd want to shut it down.

Seems that I got here too late. The video has been taken down. Interesting topic though and one worthy of further discussion.

I agree Chris. Last time I checked, mountain lions don't eat tofu. I recently saw a clip where a lion got tired of a deer squealing while it was eating the hind quarter. It was obvious the lion was irritated so it took some time out from dining to finish the deer off. That's the reality of predator versus prey. It isn't pretty.
