It was a bison, badly burned from an encounter with one of the numerous hot spots in Yellowstone National Park.
The sight of such an injured bison alone is rare, but what Wypyszinski saw next was once in a lifetime.
"Never, ever, ever," said Wypyszinski. "I've seen plenty of bear, and more buffalo. But I've never seen anything like that before."
A grizzly was chasing the buffalo (which was practically cooked already) and gaining quickly.
Wypiszinski says once in the safety of the woods the bison out maneuvered the grizzly, escaping to live exactly one more day.
Park rangers had to put the bison down due to the injuries it sustained.
