So this is Lake Kurill - or Kurill Lake, it is considered to have the most dense bear population in the whole of Russia! Denis, the blogger, has visited this place and seen lots of bears at once. Let's see bears, bears and more bears he met in the "bear village" - that's what they call it. You'llbe able to learn what the three main groups of bear fishers are, will learn that bears enjoy caviar, will learn how the bear moms protect their cubs and alot more.

Bears are huge here.

The lake is situated near the volcanoes. Here is one.


4.jpg


And here are the bears. People get really close to the beasts, and watch them for their different activities. For example:


5.jpg


A bear fishing. There can be up to twenty bears in one group and the group will go and search for the fishes.

"Even when we were arriving at the place by air we could see a lot of huge bears down there from the height", remembers Denis.


7.jpg


Here are the bear watchers.

"We planned to stay here for just thirty minutes but stayed for over two hours", remembers Denis, after seeing the captivating sight of bears going fishing.


9.jpg


"There are three groups of bears doing the fishing.First are the moms with cubs." Is it me or does this mom bear seem to be very content and almost smiling on this shot? Moms are usually happy when their kids eat, so she is probably not an exception.



10.jpg


Moms and cubs usually fish from the coast, to catch the fishthat approach the out fall of the river.


11.jpg


The fishing outcomes.


12.jpg


Because cubs can be hurt by the big male bears, some"moms" have taught their cubs to climb the trees near by and wait till the mom is done fishing. Amazing.




13.jpg



14.jpg


The second group of the fisher bears are the young bears who have already left their moms.


15.jpg


16.jpg


17.jpg


18.jpg

And the third group are the lonely adult bears - both males and females without kids. Their way of fishing is the most interesting. What dothey do? They just climb into the lake and spend all day there without leaving it, not even going to the shore to eat whenever they catch a fish and...

"..and they also find the spare time for romance, right in the lake", says Denis. Wow.

"But most of all I enjoyed watching the bear cubs", says Dennis.


25.jpg


Their main activities are the games.


26.jpg


When they see the mom approaching with a fish they try to snatch it from mom even without letting her get ashore. Egoists!


27.jpg

Another content bear mom.


28.jpg


And when the tired mom falls asleep they want her milk.


29.jpg


Sometimes there are conflicts among them. For example mothers try to turn away large bears from her cubs. When she attacks the small cubs try to attack too, covered by mom and that's sort of funny.

Bears are not only fishering masters, the also can cut fishas well as a master chef, says Dennis.


34.jpg



35.jpg


Looks like the tourists are pretty safe behind the high voltage fence or whatever this thing is?


36.jpg



37.jpg


You see those red splashes? If you look closely you can seethat its a red caviar. What a delicacy.


38.jpg



Some more caviar.


39.jpg


And even more.

Hope you liked the bear show!


Thanks to Denis for his photos!
