Grizzly Bear with Salmon

Brooks Falls Alaska Grizzly Bear

A large male grizzly bear walks off of Brooks Falls after catching a salmon in mid-air.  Often, grizzly bears will leave the falls once they catch a fish, opening up a spot for the next bear “in line”.  Eating the salmon in private on the shore helps keep the catch safe from grizzly bears who steal fish from other bears as their hunting strategy.
