1. This bear learned that he could eat the salmon that washed up on the beach after everyone went to bed. At exactly 11:45 every evening he would walk down the beach in front of my cabin to dine on fresh (and sometimes not so fresh) salmon.

    To get this footage I placed my GoPro camera at the shoreline when I saw the bear coming down the beach. As the water came in I realized that the camera was not in its waterproof housing and would be destroyed if I didn't rescue it soon. However, the bear was feet away. I ended up having to run down to the camera yelling to scare the bear off so I could put my camera in the housing. The bear grabbed a fish and ran off and I got to my camera just before it was swamped. I put it back, this time in the waterproof housing. Sure enough, the bear came back to the fish the moment I left and continued eating.
