    was this aphoto op for the benefit of the photographers if so they are doin a disservice to an otherwise majestic bear they make em look like some kinda shoplifters , scared to make a move

    Bears go for the egg sacks for the high fat content and usually leave the majority of the fish in tact. The shots of the bear eating the ‘dead’ salmon is late in the season. It has some pretty good weight on it by this time too. Nice video.

    Looks like all the salmon are dying from the end of the spawn looks like it’s gonna be winter soon

    I don’t trust these photo journalist, they put frozen dead salmon in the water and the bear is finding them.

    Are the photographers in any danger ? Will the bears attack ? Anyone have a weapon for protection ? Very scary, but Grizzlies are prone to charge in my research.

    Lions and tigers are more dangerous. You couldn’t just watch them in the wild without being inside a car.

    ive never heard of these bears. I thought this was a cross between a polar and a Kodiak.

    1 it’s not cool feeding bears to get a picture ..they need to fear all people to keep them safe from hunters . you being that close is stupid when you get eaten then the bear gets killed (just for a picture). i hate people like u

    it’s a hybrid. you can tell some physical traits of a polar. like its front legs and paws. narrow long snoat

    Was this a ‘Pizzly’ – cross breed between Polar Bear and Grizzly …. ? Colour is very pale.
