Thinking of Bears

While on the United flight between Portland and Denver yesterday, I tuned away from the ATC chatter for a while to watch "The Great Salmon Run,", a nature documentary about the annual salmon run in Western North America. Among the interesting bits that made me think of Kuma Bear were shots of bears on station at a waterfall catching salmon in their mouths -- it actually looks like the fish are jumping into the bears' mouths. Also, I learned that while bears don't mind swimming, they apparently don't like getting their ears wet.
