A Brown Bear Fishing in a Frigid River (VIDEO)

On my recent trip through southeast Alaska with American Safari Cruises, we came upon a bear happily fishing for salmon -- and catching plenty -- while kayaking in a remote bay. We gently maneuvered our kayaks in place, paddling quietly against the flow of the river as it hit the bay and spending about half an hour observing this wonderful scene.

Thanks to Trish Feaster, for shooting this video.
