Dispute by Nate-Zeman Dispute by Nate-Zeman
An Alaskan Brown Bear stands his ground over a sea otter (on the bottom right under the bear) as a larger bear tries its best to get a piece of the prize.

This isn't the same female bear as my "Battle at Katmai" photos. Once this skinny bear had the otter about 5 other bears made attempts at him. It was pretty amazing to see him stand his ground despite his small size. A morning I will most definitely never forget.

Did he get to finish his catch? Or did he eventually get bullied off?
