Fat bear week is back. According to Vox with everything going on in the world right now, “It’s also a great time to take joy in a national treasure: The very good and fat bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska. Fat Bear Week is back, baby.” Fat bear week is here to bring a smile to everyone’s faces and let people learn more about bears. During fat bear week Katmai National Forest has a fat bear competition where people can vote for what bear is the fattest. This is not fat-shaming instead it is a “celebration of life” according to the Katmai National Forest press release. October 8th the fattest bear will be announced and crowned this year as fattest bear in Katmai National Forest. Sadly, last year’s winner is not in the running again this year. Beadnose, the previous winner was not seen in the park again this year. They say she was 20 years old which is very old for a brown bear. The park says she lived a good life.

    So, what do you think of this story, Anna? Any comments?

    I heard a similar story on NPR over the weekend. Weird that this story is getting good coverage while starving polar bears are pretty much being ignored.
