Brown bears in Alaska are well known for their impressive fishing abilities around waterfalls. We’ve all seen a video of that. Watching this massive group of brown bears feeding on salmon is just amazing.
These bears survive by eating salmon so the mother bears have to get them out there young to practice their fishing skills. These bears will grow up to some of the biggest brown bears in the world eating fish as a main source of food.
When the mother bear starts to lead her cubs across the river to where she will set up to fish one of them starts to struggle. The cub kicks and kicks but slowly loses all of its footing.
You can see what’s coming before it happens.
The cub starts to go for a wild ride and takes off straight over the waterfall.
The mother bear just watches the first go down, but eventually runs around and down as two more cubs down over the falls out of view.
The cubs are all well and go as far as the eye can tell in the video. They swim to shore and shake the water off.
I would say that’s there first hard lesson of things they need to learn in the wild.
It’s a wild life out there and these brown bears are some of the wildest.
