Video: Grizzly eats my GoPro

Brad Josephs, who captures video of grizzlies and wolves in Alaska, commented, “Note to self: when filming grizzly bears, never hide your camera in a fish.”

A few years ago, the BBC hired Brad Josephs to guide a film crew for a production called the Great Bear Stakeout. His main assignment was to track a monster male bear they called Van, tracking wolves and hoping to film them with bears, and most importantly, to help set up remote, unmaned cameras to get super up-close wide angle shots that would be impossible to film otherwise. This great video is one result of that experience. Thank you, Brad Josephs and the BBC!
