A salmon has a miraculous escape from the jaws of a hungry brown bear in a river in remote Kodiak, Alaska.

Danny Sullivan, 59, captured the moment the lucky fish was dropped by the bear. Danny said, "some bears chase salmon up the river, others eat the dying ones. This bear decided to play with his food and the fish managed to escape after being dropped."

"There is plenty of other salmon in the river, so he will find more to eat."
