Mule Spots Grizzly Bear In Montana Backcountry And Sounds The Alarm

Mules and horses are always on alert for predators and will let you know when one in nearby.

Amanda Caldwell, a “5th Generation Montanan”, spends her days on the back of her horse or mule in the backcountry. She enjoys the magnificent views, sounds, and wildlife in the area.

Her trusty mule named T-Bone not only carries her for endless miles but also alerts her to danger nearby. On a recent ride, T-Bone started to snort and cause a ruckus when he spotted a grizzly bear.

But who can blame him?!

His reaction was captured on video and shared on TikTok which received over a million views in two days. Caldwell said T-Bone was spooked by a bear and “he didn’t like it.”

Viewers were quick to commend T-Bone for keeping everyone safe. Some noticed how he made himself loud and big like a “dragon” and others said how protective mules can be.

@schlunzie07 commented, “Mules have more fight than flight.. that’s for sure!”

@mr_metal_irish added, “a mules kick CAN kill a bear so I would take him seriously.”

Several people commented on what they thought the mule was thinking. “translation. ‘ladies and gentlemen fasten your seat belts and be ready.. we WILL be having turbulence and if you fall off you’re on your own’,” wrote @avekemper.

@melindacr21 said, “ok, Bear, I’m gonna be nice and give you this one warning!!”

Phew, that was a close one. Thankfully, T-Bone and his mom made it safely out of the area. Be sure to follow them on TikTok for more adventures.
