Identifier: Film Collection no. 234

Scope and Contents

Filmed during the Finley-Church Expedition to the Northland, 1926. William L. Finley and Arthur N. Pack both contributed footage of large mammals to this film. This film presents little animal behavior information, but it serves as a portrait of some large North American mammals. A variety of North American mammal species are represented: pronghorn antelope, mountain sheep, caribou, buffaloes, moose, mule deer (adult and calf), black and grizzly bears (adults and cubs). Tourists at Yellowstone Park are shown watching bears consume garbage from a dump. The bears in this park are also shown begging food from visiting motorists.
