Russia's largest brown bears refuse to hibernate, feed on spawning fish instead

Bears in the South Kamchatka Federal Reserve do not hibernate, as they continue to catch spawning fish, Interfax said with reference to the press service of the Kronotsky State Reserve.

"We have snow here already, but bears continue to wander about the tundra, bathe in rivers and lakes and catch the spawning sockeye," officials said.

"The bears were happy as children about the snowstorm. They were running about and playing. I even managed to make several interesting photos," state inspector of the reserve Andrei Gabov said.

November is the month when Kamchatka brown bears make themselves comfortable in their dens to hibernate. Some animals migrate to places of hibernation, while others spend the long winter hibernating a few kilometers from the feeding area.

The Kamchatka bear is the largest of brown bears in Russia. The length of the body along with the head is 180-245 cm, height at withers - 125-135 cm. Some individuals may weigh 600-700 kg. The large size of the Kamchatka bear is connected with abundant feeding on fish in spawning rivers. The population of brown bears in the South Kamchatka Federal Reserve makes up over a thousand individuals.
