Alaskan grizzlies chase anglers

If you are an angler and you have a secret honey hole its not likely you’re into other people showing up unannounced and dropping lines. Well it appears the same goes for grizzly bears as evidenced by their territorial response to this group of salmon fishers on Crescent Lake near Kenai, Alaska. While their human counterparts might politely ask how the intruders the found the spot and request to keep their lips sealed, grizzlies opt for intimidation tactics that are quite effective:

“Salmon fishing with the bears in Alaska! My husband and I did a fly-out from Kenai to Crescent Lake which is near Kenai, Alaska. We were catching fish after fish and the flopping sound is like dinner bells to the bears. The family of bears then started coming after us.

We started loading up but the issue is one of our companions was using the restroom so it was either we leave her behind on the island or we wait for her and risk getting eaten by the bears!

We waited for her and had to lift her and her loving husband up to the boat as one of the bears was relentless in chasing us and was only an arm’s length from our guide’s back as he was pushing the small tin boat off the island.”
