This happened on the upper Kenai river. Seeing the video reminded me of how beautiful the water was when we rafted the same stretch in june.

Viewer disgression is advised for one particular member of the forum. Orangello

Just tell 'Gello they pulled the baby out to bribe the Mom out of the woods to come get her baby so they could shoot the Mama. Then they threw the baby back in the swirling water to drown.

Yes, why yes, he can. And he will.....





Actually, that was very kind of those fishermen. I would have done the same. Poor baby bear. I'm glad they were able to save it.
