“Bear Catching Trout”

I've seen wood carvings of a bear catching salmon before, but this is the real thing! Have any of our readers had the chance to see this before?
Mr. Kazutake Asahi, a researcher at the Hokkaido Environmental Conservation Agency, sent us this photo as proof that "Bears really do catch trout!"
This is a sight that must have been more common place long ago. I wish I could have seen this spectacle head on. 
(Note: Bears really are dangerous though, so please be careful!)
