A couple of years ago, wildlife photographer Robert Bush Sr. set up a trail cam on one side of a log bridge near his home in Pennsylvania. In the viral video above, he collected one year’s worth of footage into a single compilation that shows the incredible array of wild animals that use this bridge.
Bush runs the Facebook Page and YouTube Channel Bob’s Pennsylvania Wildlife Camera, which is where he posts all of his footage as it’s captured. Most videos are only a 20-40 seconds long, but once in a while he’ll create a compilation like this one, which was picked up by NBC affiliate WSLS 10 last August.
The video didn’t really blow up until earlier today, though, when someone shared it to the r/videos subreddit. Since it was posted just 8 hours ago, the video has already received over 31K upvotes, pushing the view count of the WSLS 10 version up over 210K … about 10x the number of subscribers the news station actually has on YouTube.
You can still find the original “The Log” video, released in August of 2018, on Bush’s own YouTube channel:
Check out both videos above to see two years of “The Log” for yourself—complete with deer, raccoons, squirrels, bobcats, grouse, beavers, and one particularly entertaining clumsy bear.
Just be forewarned: this will probably make you want to go out and buy a trail cam. Then again, given the amount of times trail cam footage has shown up on PetaPixel throughout the years, that might not be such a bad idea…
