Watch: Fishing bear positions itself perfectly for ‘the catch’

·1 min read

Brown bears at Brooks Falls in Alaska apparently have turned salmon fishing into an art form.

The accompanying slow-motion footage, captured by Michael Gallo, shows a bear so perfectly positioned that a salmon attempting to clear the falls leaps directly into its mouth.

Kodiak Island Expeditions, which was leading a tour of the falls on Saturday, described the event, simply, as “The catch.”

Brown bears on the Brooks River compete for the best fishing spots and the most dominant bears can consume more than 120 pounds of salmon per day.

The public can observe the bears and their antics via live cameras operated by Explore.org and the National Park Service. The Brooks River is in Katmai National Park.
