Grizzly Takes On a GoPro Camera

Amazing up-close-and-personal footage.

By now, the GoPro camera – a 2014 Editors’ Choice award winner, by the way – is renowned for their legendary toughness (they’ve survived falling from planes, being eaten by pigs, etc.). But they’ve never gone up against the Grizz – until now.

Brad Josephs captures amazing footage of Alaska grizzlies as they frolic in the river, hunt salmon, and eventually investigate his hidden camera with fearsome tooth and claw. Watch:



The intimacy of the footage is mind-blowing (just look at the size of those footpads!), and, bouncy music aside, it crams a massive amount of insight into how Alaskan grizzlies live, hunt, and play in just a few short minutes. I’m glad the camera survived, but based on what I’ve seen bears do to cars, I’m convinced the GoPro got off easy this time. If Josephs put a bit of salmon inside the camera housing, it could’ve ended quite differently.

Kennedy could not afford to lose in Vietnam. In one letter from Kennedy to Diem, written on December 14, 1961, Kennedy writes, "The United States, like the Republic of Vietnam, remains devoted to the cause of peace and our primary purpose is to help your people maintain their independence.
