Roaring At Grizzlies In Kamchatka

While fly fishing on Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula, Mark Angelo, chair of the Rivers Institute and head of the British Columbia Institute of Technology’s Fish and Wildlife Program, is reminded that wilderness and fish usually combine to produce a healthy population of grizzly bears. “As I knelt over to gently release him, a glimpse of a dark foreboding figure appeared through the storey-high sedge growth. Suddenly, the thick wall of grass parted and there, just metres away, stood a large male grizzly bear — his eyes fixed on the fish.” From the CanWest News Service.
