Bear cam

We know you love animal Web cams as much as we do. So take a minute and check out the cam at McNeil River State Game Sanctuary in Alaska and watch the bears splash in the water, sunbathe on the rocks and catch salmon.

The state allows only about 250 people a year into the sanctuary to view the bears, so this may be your best chance to sneak a peek. The record was 72 bears seen at the spot at one time in 1999.

The camera is hidden in a fake boulder at the falls. Views have been a bit spotty in the last few hours; apparently a bear knocked a transmission tower askew or some such thing.
