Notes Russell painted this piece in 1905, likely having heard a story of his friend and Roosevelt hunting grizzlies together. It is an image of swirling action; Roosevelt is about to be successful in killing the bear, but only after some of his hunting hounds have been badly injured by the enraged animal. Whether this is an actual encounter or not is not known.
