This big brown bear carries the remains of a salmon it caught to the shore of a chilly river in Alaska’s Katmai Peninsula. The grizzly bear with his pink salmon is heading to the shore in order to eat his catch.
Salmon is a huge part of a grizzly bear’s diet. Grizzly bears are excellent fishers, capable of snapping the fish out of the water with their jaws, as this grizzly bear with pink salmon shows. Grizzly bears will be drawn to the shores of high-country rivers in huge numbers when salmon begin swimming upstream to spawn.
