"Like all good things, Fat Bear Week has come to its inevitable end.
A week ago, 12 of Katmai National Park and Preserve’s chunkiest chunks began a cutthroat competition. Now, after a single-elimination bracket allowed voters to choose their favorite pudgy predators, a single beefy brown bear reigns supreme.
In the end, it came down to two fearsome fatties, 32 Chunk and 747. But only one airplane-like unit came out on top.
“747 earned it," Katmai media ranger Naomi Boak said of the winner. “He is our biggest, fattest bear.”"
