Lunchtime video: Brown bears of Alaska’s Katmai National Park

Hungry?

These brown bears at Alaska’s Katmai National Park are. That’s why they are wading near Brooks Falls, waiting for salmon to swim toward them so they can eat.

The Associated Press reports:

A park official says it will provide an unparalleled opportunity for people to study bears at the park, which is difficult to reach and expensive for most tourists. Katmai is about 275 miles southwest of Anchorage, but no roads lead there, so a trip involves multiple airplanes and a lot of planning.
