I never thought I would see a bear referred to as "voluptuous".

Damn you, Ulysses...

Fiddler, Phillip and Bama got excited that it was a bunch of queens.  Don't tease them like that, they're huntin' of sugar daddies.

I'll pass.

Maybe Bert can take one for the team, like last time.

Aaaaand,

We Have A Winner:





Yes, it's Bear # 409, alias "Beadnose", whose "radiant rolls" led to her scoring twice as many likes as her nearest competitor!


Quote:
"All of it is a fun — and it is fun — way to educate people on the struggle for survival that these bears go through and the dramatic changes involved that. They are going to lose about one-third of their body weight over winter hibernation, and in order to survive the next year, they have to gain all of that back, in a few short weeks over the summer," Andrew LaValle, a park ranger at Katmai, told NPR.

"As fun and silly as this thing is, there is a serious undertone to it," he said. "They're fishing and eating as much as they are because they have to. It is a game of life and death for them, with serious consequences."

LaValle said they estimate both bears in the Fat Bear Tuesday final to be just over 1,000 pounds, saying 747 might be larger based on the size of his frame. "It is all just estimated — we don't have them step on any scales or anything — so, we can only guess, and that's part of the fun of it," LaValle said.

In the end, Bear 409 was crowned the "Fattest Bear." Social media users seemed to concede that 747 was bigger, but they just liked 409's apparent backstory: a single mom trying to make it in the wild.

"She deserves it...has had four multiple birth litters and raised her cubs to maturity ! About time a female bear won!" commented Donna Merrick Newton on Facebook.
