I’m going to end this week with furry vertebrates, and this is a good one. It’s a four-minute video of a grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) noming a GoPro Hero2 camera that was apparently set up to record the bears fishing.
From the YouTube description by Brad Josephs:
When using a GoPro to capture unusually close footage of grizzly bears for the Great Bear Stakeout for BBC, I had a young bear actually chew on the camera. Amazingly there was no damage to the camera! Some of this clip appears in the film Great Bear Stakeoout on BBC and Discovery Channel. Video copyright Brad Josephs.
Look at those teeth and claws! The last two minutes show a bear catching unsmoked lox. Someone give him a bagel and a schmear!
