The coexistence of the bears and the seagulls was intriguing in that nature has instilled so decidedly in bears the notion that salmon are tasty and seagulls, not so much. As I followed the bear as she  fervently fished, I questioned, " Why not just go poultry?"  But no, the bears selected their seafood entrees and the seagulls waited resignedly. I did speak with a woman in Denali who had just seen the bears on Kodiak, and she observed one bear who did eventually grow annoyed with a seagull and with one slap of a paw- the problem was eliminated.
