Meanwhile, some bears are fishing salmon out of a river in Alaska

#Bearcam may just be the best thing ever. has two hi-def webcams turned on in Alaska's Brooks River in Katmai National Park. More than a hundred Brown Bears gather along a mile long stretch of Brooks River there each year, to pig out on the world's largest Sockeye Salmon run. And now, we get to watch the whole thing online. (via @gregmitchell)


  1. “The journey of a thousand miles sometimes ends very very badly”

  2. Also a nice reminder of how long sunlight is up there. Pitch black where I’m at, it’s still full day on the camera.

  3. I am going to Alaska, where the animals can kill you,
    but they do so in silence, as though if no-one hears them,
    then it really won’t matter. I am going to Alaska.
    They tell me that it’s perfect for my purposes.

  5. Why don’t fishermen just stand there with nets and catch the salmon?

    Oh yeah, the bears.

  6. I was watching a bit last night. It wasn’t the bears that amazed me, it was the giant flying bugs swarming the camera.

    1. This is really awesome.  I just watched for 10 minutes and saw a bear catch and eat a salmon, and then another bear charged over and they had a big confrontation in the middle of the river!  Love it.
