Kodiak Brown Bears are big bears and by the time the cubs are three or so as this cub is, they’re quite imposing figures. When something catches their attention that is off in the distance a bit, they will stand on their hind legs to get a better view. A standing Kodiak Brown Bear is even more imposing than one standing on all fours. We watched mama bear do it and the cubs learned from her. We didn’t know what caught this cub’s attention but it suddenly stood up and stared across to the other bank of the river. It must not have been much of a threat though, as Mama Bear, in the background, didn’t take notice and after a few seconds, the cub dropped down to all fours again and resumed fishing for salmon.
