Brown Bear with Salmon

During July and August, salmon swim upstream in Alaska’s rivers and are fair game for brown bears. Chum salmon provide a protein-rich diet that enables bears to survive Alaska’s harsh winters. Each bear has his own fishing technique, learned through practice and experience. Although normally solitary by nature, bears tolerate each other during the salmon runs due to the abundance of food.
