Great Bear Stakeout Full Episode Guide

  • In this episode, the world-famous salmon run arrives in Alaska. The bears must catch hundreds of these fish if they are to bulk up and survive the harsh winter months. We discover that young grizzly mum Parsnip and her cub Pushki have returned to the bay to feed on the salmon. But predatory adult bears will kill cubs and, with fierce competition, Parsnip must protect her cub and learn the skills of fishing if they are to both make it through hibernation. As winter approaches, life gets more intense, survival gets tougher, and the threats get even greater.

  • In this episode we meet Parsnip, a first-time grizzly mum, and her young cub, Pushki. Only half of new bear cubs make it through the season, and they are both struggling to survive in this vast Alaskan wilderness. This area is ruled by a massive male bear, Van, and his partner Alice, a prized female bear with an aggressive and sinister side. Hungry adult bears will kill cubs, so Parsnip's summer is full of unexpected adventure; she must escape Van's clutches and learn from her mistakes if she and her cub are to survive the season.
