The Back Story:
Bear with Fish
Each summer as thousands of salmon make their way upstream to spawn, bears are gathering at special places near the falls and shallow parts of rivers to catch them. Some bears stand on the bank and watch for fish to swim close by, while others stand right in the falls and wait for the salmon to come to them. Sometimes a salmon will leap so close that a bear will bite it right out of the air! When the fishing is good, a larger bear will eat 8 to 10 salmon before it feels full.
