Wild Child

Brooks Falls - Katmai National Park, Alaska


My favorite Brooks Falls’ Bear, Bear 284, a young adult female, looks up from fishing. I nicknamed her "Wild Child." We watched her sprint along gravel bars chasing seagulls for the pure joy, its seems, of being a bear. One Ranger we befriended described her as “absolutely insane,” saying that she has charged him four times, chases seagulls for joy and once climbed a tree about 10 feet, then started jumping on the branch she was standing on just to see what would happen. We can’t wait to go back to see how her kids turn out. 2682
