Paunchy chonk nicknamed ‘BearForce One’ wins Fat Bear Week crown

Tremendous-chonk 747 captured the Fats Bear Week crown for 2020.


Congratulations, 747, you’re the hero we want proper now. 

The world of 2020 could also be a nightmare circus, however not less than we had Fat Bear Week, an annual contest run by the Katmai National Park & Preserve in Alaska and nature livecam web site

The competitors pits rotund, salmon-gorged brown bears towards one another in a reputation contest that goals to crown the chunkiest as champion. A bear generally known as 747 (or “Bear Pressure One” as his followers name him) took high honors on Tuesday, beating out a crowd of roly-poly challengers. 

Because of his gargantuan girth, 747 was an early favorite earlier than the competition began on Sept. 30. He beat out bear 32 (nicknamed “Chunk”). Chunk had some sizable tummy reserves this yr, however 747’s junk within the trunk (and throughout) was an excessive amount of to deal with.

Fats Bear Week is a celebration of how bears put together for winter hibernation. It is a vital time when they should pack on the kilos for survival. shared a video of the brand new king of chonk having fun with a river dip.

Bear Pressure One severely trounced Chunk with 47,055 votes in comparison with the runner-up’s 21,854. However they’re each winners as their copious fats shops are prone to see them safely via the lean months of winter hibernation. 

You recognize who else is a winner right here? I’m. As a result of for one too-short week, I buried myself in bear fats and fluff and dreamed of sleeping the remainder of 2020 away.
