Bears typically lose a third of their body weight during their winter sleep so the body fat they take on in the summer and autumn is crucial to their survival. ​​​​​​

Katami Park is heavily populated with salmon, along with different types of berries. Female bears typically put on around 600lb (272kg) before their sleep.

Holly is well-known to fans of the park and has been seen on its "bear cam" by millions of people.

She previously adopted a cub which had been abandoned by its mother - something which is rare among the species, prompting Ms Boak to nickname Holly "supermom".

The number of votes during this year's Fat Bear contest was three times that of the 2018 contest.
