Twitter on fire as thousands, maybe millions, watch brown bears trying to catch salmon in Alaska on Brooks River at a small waterfall. Succumb via link below (and bears should return by 6:30 am on Friday):
Brown Bear & Salmon Cam - Brooks Falls - Bears - explore
Also love the comments at #Bearcam hashtag, such as: "Bear in lower left has the patience of a zen master." Naturally: "Can tell by his face that one bear is totally peeing in the river. " Also: "This if more interesting than MSNBC." And: "Do you think there are bears watching a Peoplecam?" Speaking for many: "Can't. Stop. Watching." Empathy: "Everyone's getting a fish except the one dude on top of the falls--can't catch a break." Concern: "Attention Bear On The Far Shore--I know the water is cold, but I'm concerned you're going to starve to death." And there's even a guide to the "hotspots" in what you're viewing. Next: We know what happens when they go in the woods, as it were.
