Katmai National Park & Preserve once again enter October Madness with their Fat Bear Week bracket.
Voting starts today, October 2, with Lefty taking on fan favorite Otis.
Four bears of Katmai have used their extensive girth to get a well earned bye: Chunk, the wide body #747, #503, and Holly.
Surprisingly, Beadnose, the 2018 winner, did not make this year’s cut. So there will be no repeat champion.
The new winner will be crowned on Fat Bear Tuesday, October 8.
