You are correct we did not take the meat of this bear. The brown bears here in Alaska are not fit for eating in the fall season. They have a diet that consist almost entirely on fish. This makes their meat very greasy and fishy smelling as well as tasting. I would compare it to eating a duck that eats fish such as a Merganser to a Mallard. We did notify the locals of its whereabouts therefore if they wanted to take any of the meat or organs it was available.

I will attempt to downsize one of the photos so it will post.
