Alaska’s fat­test Bear is 409 Bead­nose

The Sunday Guardian - - The Week -

AN­CHOR­AGE: A brown and pos­si­bly preg­nant mother known as 409 Bead­nose was crowned on Tues­day as Fat­test Bear of 2018. Bead­nose nosed out a larger Alaska brown bear, a male called 747, in on­line votes col­lected by staff at Kat­mai Na­tional Park and Pre­serve dur­ing a wildly pop­u­lar event called Fat Bear Week. Male bears are big­ger but Bead­nose was deemed to be more ro­tund. “Her ra­di­ant rolls were deemed by the vot­ing pub­lic to be this year’s most fab­u­lous flab,” the park said. Fat Bear Week started in 2014 as a one-day ed­u­ca­tional event called Fat Bear Tues­day, but be­came a week-long event the next year.
