The spectacle unfolded earlier this week near the US Forest Service’s Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center, which noted in a statement to video licensor ViralHog that Nicky is “a very famous bear” in Juneau.
“People were amazed and surprised to see Nicky with a big salmon in her mouth when she came out from the bushes,” the statement read. “She is smart, tender, and loves attention. She has had 16 cubs since 2003.”
It’s safe to say Nicky and her young cub seen in the recording had quite the spread for lunch that day.
