Planet Carnivore: King Bear

King Bear
Brown bears once ranged widely across North America before humans wiped them out, but in Katmai, on the Southwest Alaskan Peninsula, they thrive. In the nearly six thousand square miles of rugged wilderness, violence can erupt at any moment. "Tuyuq" a powerful Alaskan brown bear, has dominated the valley's corridors for 10 seasons. Now, a brash young challenger is waiting to overthrow him and Tuyuq must fight to remain king bear.
