Passed this guy on a real scorching hot summer day lying on his right side .. I "thought" it was road kill... after exploring for about an hour i rode back by and buddy was on his left side...scooped him up and drove about 40kms home with the tank bag open .no movement.

Good on ya man, not enough people in the world go that extra mile.
Not entirely wild
But this little bastard was... despite being on a chain. Picked us up and threw us 10' whilst trying to spear and kill me
Stopped to check out this big bull elk eating in a church yard in Bennezette PA.
It's been raining a bit recently so I was out walking my property to see if I could ride my dirtbike without making too much of a mess and stumbled upon this beast. This is a Southeastern snapping turtle living in its native habitat. The rain had filled its home with water so I'm guessing it was traveling to the pond from its hole for some snacks. I left her in peace and left the bike in the shed.
Hard to get the bike in the photo, as I'm usually astride my rapid departure device when I'm shooting grizzlies, or I'll be trying to creep up on swans paddling leisurely across a pond. But sometimes the animals cooperate.
Same trip, coming back home on a different bike.
This one came up for a closer inspection of the bike... and photographer. Didn't need to come any closer, thank you!
Awesome. must be disoriented or on peyote. These critters are normally to shy and clever to get this close.
Lots of animals to be seen along the Alcan. Some will stick around to have their photo taken, like this bighorn ram.
About 40 years ago, coming back home in early April, up through the Icefields Parkway (with almost no other traffic) an old bighorn with about a curl & a quarter horns with badly broomed tips was on the highway. So we stopped, rolled down the windows, and my wife fed him some of my chocolate chip cookies while I stood behind the car with my Super8 movie camera shooting him. His horns were so big he could barely get his head in to grab the cookies. Wish I could somehow blow those frames up to post a few of them in Smugmug.
A few bears that I've shot (with a camera) from the seat of a motorcycle over the years. This first one was on the Cassiar, a few miles north of Meziadin Jct.
Sow and cub several miles south of Haines Jct on the Haines Hwy.
A pair (sow and cub) of Toklat (blonde bodies, dark legs) grizzlies at the bottom of Ice Cut on the Dalton Hwy.
And, of course, countless moose, caribou, waterfowl... even a couple of wolves. Bears are pretty elusive, so it would be necessary to have a GoPro or similar running all the time I'm on the road away from cities.
Some more from the Alaska Highway. 2014 trip
And one my wife took while we were riding that I really like.
Australian feral pigs.Not to wild when I found them.
Didn't know about this thread until now... so, no bike in this pic. But I guess it qualifies as I took it while I was riding Abra del Acay, Ruta 40, Argentina last february. It's an andean fox. Pretty wild, tried to eat a lady's little dog who was arriving at the same place. Saw its movement, took the shot, then I heard my buddy screaming at the old woman "take your dog inside the car, now"!!! Needless to say she almost died of a heart attack...
This ugly sucker was very aggressive and was getting all up in my grill.
