The return of salmon to the coastal rivers of British Columbia bring with them other forms of wildlife in search of their nutritious value. Among those in search of the salmon are black bears, who wander the river banks looking for ideal locations to catch a meal. This lone black bear found a pool in which several spawning salmon were swimming. Finding salmon is relatively easy; catching them is something else entirely. As I watched the bear charged into the cold waters, hoping to pounce on one of the panicked chum salmon startled by the sudden activity. Despite the bear's best efforts, they were not rewarded with a meal. After a couple attempts it moved on to find another pool where it might have more success.
