Brown Bear and Chum Salmon, Alaska #82FB


A male brown bear wades from the McNeil River Falls with a chum, or dog, salmon clamped in its jaws. Each year, bears congregate along the river to feast upon salmon, slowed in their upstream spawning migration by a rocky falls. Bears gorge on easily caught fish and quickly put on weight. One Alaska Peninsula bear gained almost twice its body weight in one summer! Chum salmon are also called “dog” salmon because of their toothy hooked jaws.
