There are small and fat bears, old and fat bears, young and fat bears, just plain fat bears. But none, NONE I say, are as fat as 747 in 2017. He has earned my official endorsement in the 2017 Fat Bear Week tournament.
747 is a mature adult male in the prime of his life. He has gained at least as much and probably more weight than all others. In my opinion, 747 is the biggest and fattest at Brook River.
Compare 747’s overall size in late spring…
…with his fatness in early September.
Still not convinced? Then watch this video of 747 from September 6, 2017.
Since then, 747 has gained even more weight.
Too much fat is unhealthy for humans, but fat is essential to the survival of brown bears. It is a savings account against famine. Without ample fat, bears do not survive hibernation. In spring, often a season of starvation for bears, females with cubs will metabolize fat into milk to nurse their growing cubs, and adult males will use their fat to fuel their pursuit of mates.
747 won’t be rearing any cubs next spring as male brown bears play no role in raising offspring. During a season when almost no high calorie foods are available to bears, 747 will use his fat to roam the landscape for mates instead.
747 faces some tough competitors in this year’s tournament, but don’t fall for any other fat bear propaganda from the fake news mainstream leftwing socialist progressive liberal media. 747 is larger and fatter than any other bear at Brooks River. He’s huge, tremendous, and will win “bigly.”

Yep, that I can tell you. 🙂
That’s also the breakdown of my choice! Since 755 is always disqualified despite the porker he is, I’m going for the jumbo, 747!
Ha ha ha ha….he is a huge bear. He also had a pretty big belly to start with in the spring!
I concur! His back legs look like pegs, he looks like a walking piggy bank, he looks like a hippo in the water. He defines immense.
Certainly a great sales pitch!
Well, you know how influential you are with the chatters, so I’m sure it will be 747, and that’s fine with me. 🙂
What are your comments to the allegations that the outside influences, supporting 480’s re-election campaign, are interfering in the contest? =)
Take heart 480 voters. The polls said Trump couldn’t win. How did that turn out?
Your last few lines make me want to vote for another candidate!
what every you say , Mike my winner is 503 because see it in July when it looks like a skinny dog, and now he is a cubby young bear…he never will look FAT, because of its long legs….
I agree! 😀
Hahahahahahahahaaaaa :-)))))) Huge body, tiny paws! BBC FOR 503! :-)))))))

Interesting Mike that you are setting aside your intellectual detachment and now entering the world of partisan bear politics…

Sorry Mike. Know 747 is huge but my heart belongs to 480. I’m old like Otis so have to wish him the win. Maybe 747 will win in later years.
