Alaskan Bruin Slays Them for
Food and Sport.

Gulls .and To rim Alto Among
Causes for Waning Fish Sup
ply In Northern Rivers.
Bears that flsh In shallow water and
gulls and terns that pluck out the eyes
of their prey aro destroying millions
of Alaskan salmon, according to E.
Lostor Jones, deputy commissioner of
tho bureau of fisheries, who was sent
to Alaska last summer to Investigate
tho causes of tho waning salmon sup
ply. Tho bears, ho says, aro tho worst
offenders, becauso thoy haunt the
shores of streams during tho spawn
ing soason, and, besides killing hugo
quantities for food, alny muny thou
sands of others just for tho puro Joy
of tho sport.
Tho commissioner In his report tella
how at Black Bear creek in the Clovo
land peninsula ho found tho shores for
ICO feot on both sidoB littered with
hundreds upon hundreds of humpback,
silver and chum salmon that had been
tossed out of the water by bears,
Hardly any of the fish had been mu
tilated except by tho marks of tho
bear's claws on their backs. All that
wbs eaten was tho "cheok" of tho sal
mon, the boar, according to Commls
loner Jones, bolng very fastidious and
preferring that part to any other.
As the bears in Alaska aro the larg
est in tho world and aro noted for
tholr ravenous appetites, it is, easy to
realize how much damage thoy can do.
On Kodlak island, whore tho full
grown bear weighs three-quarters of
a ton, tho deputy comihlsBlonor
learned from a natlvo that one of
these giants could eat n third of his
own weight in salmon In a single day.
"As In other parts of tho territory
Mr. Jones remarks, "this bear also
IhrowB considerable numbers of flsh
out of tho water, many of which it
may never caro to touch for food."
While wolves and even eagles aro
also doing much harm, Mr. Jones
found that still greater destruction
was caused by gulls and torns. Do
