Brown bears in Alaska are a staple. People travel for miles and miles to see the large groups of bears that gather near waterbodies to eat the large salmon that inhabit the waters.
A salmon is like gold to a bear. In the areas they are plentiful they provide a food source that is rich in protein and fats the bear needs that they can catch with relatively low energy output.
All the bears have to do is be patient and strike at the perfect time and they can get all the food they ever need.
Often times, the popular fishing holes are crowded with bears. Not so different from humans’ popular spots.
These bears generally live in peace in these areas as there’s enough food to go around and then some. They even can be fairly passive towards humans since they generally don’t walk around on an empty stomach. But, they still have their natural instincts and can get worked up from time to time.
These two grizzly bears are both standing at the top of a small set of waterfalls. They begin to fight as they step on each other’s toes while fishing.
The parallels between the bears and humans are oddly hilarious in this video.
One bear comes out on top pushing the other off the falls.
But, that’s when he decides he doesn’t want the bear getting all the fish down there either. This bear then leaps from the falls to the water down below in dramatic fashion.
Like I said, these bears are just to fun to watch.
