A bracket tournament for animal lovers begins this week. It’s “Fat Bear Week 2020”!

Every year, the Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska ranks the plumpest bears of Brook’s River.

When it comes to these big brown bears getting ready for hibernation, fat bears are healthy bears.

The tournament starts Wednesday. If you want to vote to decide 2020’s fattest bear, click here.
