Description

During a photo tour at the end of August, we observed and photographed between 15 - 20 Alaskan Brown Bear including 3 sets of cub twins. Most of the adult bears fished by wading in shallow streams while looking side to side. This young boar was the only adult bear who fished totally underwater. After making this catch, he climbed the opposite bank and looked back before consuming his dinner.
