Fishing alongside bears
No, this is not a picture of a family and their pet bear. Living in Alaska means becoming a fisherman, and fishing in Alaska means learning to share the waters with the wildlife. We should probably be glad that the bear here is hankering for fish and not humans.
Even though bear sightings are common, the locals are smart enough not to mess with wild animals. After all, if the bear is strong enough to push your truck off the road, imagine what it can do to a human. This bear is probably waiting to tax the fishermen before they leave, and we’d take that deal without asking questions.
