Summer is here, and it’s time for some hot bear-on-fish action.
Turns out brown bears are trash monsters whose habit of noshing on garbage leads them to develop a more sedentary lifestyle. Wow, same!
I like to imagine this bear thinks it’s opening the office refrigerator. “Leftover dad, eh. Mmm, hey, anybody’s name on those screaming kids in the back?”
Last Friday, Joanne Barnaby went mushroom picking in a forest near Fort Smith in the Canadian Northwest Territories. It was an inauspicious beginning to what would end up being a 12-hour ordeal, one involving a desperate wolf, swarms of mosquitoes, an unwitting bear cub—and a can of beer.
This was an adorable year for the bearcam in Katmai National Park. Here’s our ten favorite moments of coastal brown bears catching salmon, playing with their cubs, sleepily lazing the day away, and frolicking through the Alaskan wilderness in 2015.
Russia has now integrated its strategic bomber assets into its air campaign in Syria. Tu-22M3s Backfires, Tu-95MS Bears, and even Russia’s precious handful of Tu-160 Blackjack bombers have all delivered ordinance onto targets in Syria. This comes as Putin himself has announced that a bomb did indeed take down…
Long claws make for excellent clam-digging.
Claw marks rip open tree bark, oozing sap like a botanical blood. Scratches like this scream a single message loud and clear: a bear was here. They aren’t subtle creatures.
Even peering down from a road bridge in Alaska is far closer to a grizzly bear than I ever want to get. What makes this particularly creepy? Those claws aren’t much larger than a harpy’s talons. The world is full of things that can rip puny humans to shreds.
Every year, hundreds of black, brown and even polar bears are successfully rehabilitated from their addiction to human-reliant food sources and released back into the wild. How does bear rehab work?
Flying RC drones is hugely fun, but also endlessly stressful: at any time you’re liable to chop someone’s hand open, or crash your $1000 toy into a power line. As it turns out, humans aren’t the only ones who get stressed by nearby UAVs.
While hunting this week, I managed to stalk to within 30 yards of a bear and snuck up on an Army Ranger undetected. Here’s how to be vewy, vewy quiet outdoors. It’s a skill anyone can use.
It was a great day to be this Colorado bear yesterday. After breaking into a local pie shop, Sir Bear helped himself to some pie. Matter of fact, he helped himself to all the pie, except for the strawberry rhubarb.
It’s officially summer, which means the salmon are running in Alaska’s Katami National Park which means the local brown bears are poking around there to eat them which means the BearCam is back up for the season. I just watched for like three minutes and I saw a bear!
Every geoscientist in North America has a favourite story of helicopters, bears, or both, but these epic field stories take it up a notch to nearly incredible.
It turns out that the video of black bears chasing tourists in Yellowstone National Park is less a case of a protective mother and her cubs and more a case of a frightened bear trying to get away from gawking tourists who trapped them.
On April 4, young brown bears play in one of two large enclosures at Kuterevo Bear Refuge in central Croatia. The shelter was founded in 2002 by retired social worker Ivan Crnkovic-Pavenka; it’s staffed largely by volunteers and currently hosts eight bears, all of which were orphaned as cubs.
For some people the thought of trusting their lives to a long metal tube soaring 30,000 feet above the earth causes some concern. But unless you're living the life of a hermit, flying is hard to avoid. So for a confidence boost—and a comfy way to sleep away the miles—this tiny plush bear is the perfect travel companion
