Coastal Brown Bears - budsalaskaphotos

This large bear has developed a unique method of fishing. The salmon rest in back washes behind big rocks on they upstream swim. This bear, named "Jordan" is big enough to stay put in the fast running water of the falls, so he creates his own backwash. When a fish settles in the back wash for a rest, Jordan gets a meal. I was told that he weighs around 1,300 pounds.
