Synopsis

National Geographic: Giant Bears of Kodiak Island
Kodiac Island in the Gulf of Alaska is home to the amazing Kodiak bears, cousins of the grizzly, which reach an astounding 1,500 pounds. This National Geographic documentary follows the development of the tiny cubs until they become 2 year olds. Then their mothers reject them and they must follow a tough life of survival. Eventually the bears learn to feast on salmon and to call truces during mating season. Encounters with humans nearby often lead to tragic consequences, as foraging bears are fatally shot by locals. Most of the island is a bear refuge, with the remainder belonging to Native Americans since 1970. But the encroachment of some unapproved housing on bear habitat suggests that humans are still wresting with how to share the island peaceably. ~ Gayla Mills, Rovi
