This is Scarface, a grizzly bear in Yellowstone National Park. The park rangers had placed a carcass that was hit by a car nearby, so he hung out for a while, chowing down. I understand he is an older grizzly that had suffered some injuries to his face, thus the name Scarface. I wasn't close enough to get a closeup of his face, but then I'm not sure I would have wanted to get too much closer. I have a healthy respect for anything that can rip my face off with a random swipe of the claw.
