Alaska – Play fighting bears


We didn’t get to see any serious bear fights in Alaska as we were past the prime mating period.  We did however, get to see a couple of play fights among sub adult males.  These two went at it for quite a while including chasing eachother from one side of a stream to the other and then re-engaging.  They were fairly rough but you could tell that it didn’t have the intensity or the intent that a real fight has.

  2. I know that these bears are large and imposing, but they are just so darn cute! I want to scratch them behind the ears.

    • Jackie,
      I agree with you MOST of the time…when they’re fighting (even in play) ….not so much
