Ladies and gentlemen, sows and boars, the Fattest Bear of 2018 is… 409 Beadnose!
Bears must eat one year’s worth of food in six short months to survive hibernation, and 409 has excelled at that. Her radiant rolls were deemed by the voting public to be this year’s most fabulous flab. Our chubby champ has a few more weeks to chow down on lingering salmon carcasses before she heads up the mountains to dig herself a den and savor her victory.
What does the she win for all this hard work? Stronger chances of living through the winter.
Spot her on the Bear Cams for a few more weeks atexplore.org/bears
