Witnessing a bear kill in the wild is something that few people ever get to experience. One Colorado family got a special treat, or not, when a bear stalked down a deer in their backyard and did the dirty deed right in front of their back window.

In this video, which should be viewed with caution, the deer puts out gut-wrenching screams as the bear gets a firm grip on the back of its neck. Turns out severing a spinal cord with a pair of teeth is not the easiest way to kill a 200-pound animal.
