The struggle is real.
The wild bears of Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska — who are livestreamed on the explore.org webcams — have grown impressively fat this summer, ahead of their long, looming hibernation. The famous Brooks River, where the bears congregate, has teemed with the bears’ meal of choice: 4,500-calorie salmon.
One bear in particular, an adult male bear numbered 747 by Katmai biologists, has grown so large that the webcams caught the rotund animal having trouble walking up the riverbank (which the bears go up and down every day).
747, however, persevered.
