What happens when researchers electrify a dead deer in an experiment to test bear deterrence methods for hunters? According this video, posted in a YouTube channel about grizzlies, the bear turns out to be more persistent than originally thought. The following verbiage accompanied the video: ” A Montana grizzly bear attempts to retrieve an electrically charged, road-killed deer. The deer is electrified as an experiment to protect hunters’ game kills and, in turn, to minimize bear-human encounters.” The deer was electrified using a car battery and at first it seemed to work, but the bear showed some dogged determination and it paid off with a free meal.
