Congregation of Grizzly Bears

Congregation of grizzly bears in Katmai National ParkA congregation of grizzly bears fishing for salmon in late summer.  Large groups of grizzlies will fish side by side during salmon runs.  Although they sometimes squabble over fish, most of the grizzly bears interact with each other peacefully.

It is also a myth that the largest grizzly bears dominate the fishing spots.  I’ve observed countless times large males fishing side by side with sub adults and smaller female bears.  In one interesting incident, a female mother bear intimidated a much larger male who had taken over her preferred spot.  Read about this grizzly bear encounter here.
