Famous Yellowstone Grizzly known as "Scarface". Fight left him with facial scars, torn ear and nose. Estimated to be 27 years old in 2015. One of the oldest known wild grizzly. Has few remaining teeth. During this sequence he crossed the road bridge to Lower Yellowstone Canyon, much to the dismay of a woman trapped on the center of the bridge with her bicycle. Neither woman nor bear were hurt, but her look of surprise was memorable.
