“This remarkable film is set in one of the harshest winters in decides in Yellowstone National and looks at how the lives of lots of other creatures in this unique ecosystem are affected by the death of a bison bull”

In the haze of driving snow in the Lamar Valley, Yellowstone, a herd of bison pushes against the prevailing wind.
Life is hard in the winter and the end comes mercifully for the weak and the old. Unable to store a reserve of fat, they have depleted their bodies’ resources. And yet, a crueller fate awaits the others.

Starvation and exhaustion affect every animal and the social structure of the herd changes completely. During this unusually severe winter, two out of every three bison will die.

The struggle for life in the forest is endless. This documentary gives us pause: is death an end? Or is it a beginning? The film shows how the dead bison bull is distributed into the natural landscape and how the death of one animal ensures the lives of others.

The grizzlies, the wolves and the coyotes will share the bounty of death with bald eagles, magpies, geese, other birds and a multitude of insects, including blow-flies and carrion beetles. The bison bull will become a living ecosystem in itself, with co-operating or fighting species, all claiming their part of the territory.
Every part of the carcass will nurture some form of life – nothing is wasted.

Death of a Bison Bull follows the cycle of life of several animals – as well as young bison calves, the film takes a close look at Yellowstone’s wolves, with amazing close-up scenes of the alpha female giving birth to a litter of wolf pups and suckling them in her underground den.

This DVD is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated 24-page hardback reference book. Watch the close-up wildlife film and at the same time read the book to learn about habitats, diet, life cycle and more. The book is packed with intriguing facts, illustrations, photography and a 'Test your knowledge' quiz.
