4Fishy business

This photograph was clicked by Yuri Choufour. Black bears are omnivores who greatly depend on salmon and other protein-rich fishes to build up their reserves. This must be done before they hibernate in the winter. While bears are vicious hunters, there is something vulnerable about this bear, trying to gather as much food as it can.
