Sizing Up a Steal (Explored) by Cheryl Strahl
AK 2017: Katmai N.P. and Preserve. We flew to Mirror Lake from Lake Clark then trekked along Funnel Creek where we spent the day watching and photographing the brown bears. This confrontation was interesting (it happened twice while we were there). The light colored bear caught the sockeye salmon. The more aggressive darker bear came over to check it out and managed to take it away after a scrimmage. The lighter colored bear looked like s/he was well fed, so this behaviour probably didn’t happen too often. (Close crop) Flickr Explore 8/13/17 - Thank You!
