Bear catches fish— An Alaskan Grizzly Bear captures a female salmon from a waterfall. If you look closely, you can see the salmon’s eggs coming out as the bear squeezes the fish. The protein-filled eggs are an integral part of the brown bear’s diet.
These bears catch fish out of mid-air while they are jumping upstream. Salmon need to spawn upriver, at the same place they themselves were born. This tough migration upstream makes the salmon easy pickings for predators like grizzly bears.
