In Brooks River, the greatest bear is the best bear.
That's the reason Katmai National Park and Preserve in King Salmon, Alaska pays tribute to its curvaceous bear inhabitants by facilitating its yearly Fat Bear Week to decide the fattest (read: best) bear in the reserve.
The rivalry is styled sort of like March Madness. People in general votes on usually observed dark colored bears on the recreation center's Bear Cam, setting them against each other on a section until the point that one bear rules supreme.
Just on the off chance that you feel frustrated about the bears, don't be. Since dark colored bears need stores of fat to support them survive the winter amid hibernation, being the "fattest bear" is an indication of good wellbeing. The recreation center's site noticed this is really the time when bears begin to eat constant with the end goal to plan for the winter, so a fat bear is a cheerful and sound bear.
According to the recreation center's site, some remarkable contenders incorporate Bear 747, whose "midsection scarcely makes leeway with the ground," Bear 435 Holly who is a "mother of two offspring," and the earlier year's boss Bear 480 Otis.
This year's opposition commenced on October 3 and will proceed until October 9.
