Bella Coola, British Columbia, Canada

This young grizzly bear was “fishing” in the river for salmon which were plentiful as it was salmon spawning time.

This image was shot Sep 18 2011 at about 12:30 am in the Atnarko River in Bella Coola. We happened upon this young bear as he was ambling along the shore line of the river, in and out of the water, in he was hunting for salmon to eat. He would pick up a salmon, take a few bites, throw it away and repeat this process as he ambled along. We were sitting in a raft about 100 feet away observing him quietly as he “fished” for the salmon. He was a bit intrigued by us when he spotted us but more interested in eating as he kept along his merry way!!! Many of the gizzlies in Bella Coola are “human tolerant”…..even the young ones ….which is great for us photographers!
