The winner of Fat Bear Week is.......

By  | 

The people have spoken!
A new champ has emerged at an annual competition at Alaska's Katmai National Park and Preserve.
Meet number 435 also known as Holly.
The park says online voters picked her to be this year's "Fat Bear Week" champion.
Fat Bear Week highlights the changes Alaska's brown bears can go through during hibernation.
The bears, already the largest brown bears in the world, can nearly double in size during hibernation.
That's all thanks to scarfing down 90 pounds of food a day.
Momma bear Holly beat out more than a dozen other bears to take home this year's crown.
