Pretty crazy experience for all of the tourists, and guides, involved in this one. These two bears seem to pass through this crowd of people, heading out into the field to continue their argument. I’d say stay away from the wildlife, but these animals approached the tourists, and the tourists were with some pretty knowledgable guides. Plus, it seems pretty clear that they were significantly more occupied with each other than with the people nearby.

As bear guides on the coast of Alaska, we are usually more preoccupied by bears interacting with other bears than we are about a single animal. Thanks to decades of responsible habituation, the bears here don’t mind us and usually worry more about others of their own kind. The biggest threat to a bear is another bear, and oftentimes one’s reaction to another can happen quickly.
