Pike Place fish-throwers toss salmon to zoo bears

SEATTLE (AP) — Fishmongers from Seattle's iconic Pike Place Market tossed salmon to grizzly bears at the Woodland Park Zoo to help raise awareness about the animals.

The famous fish-throwers were on hand Thursday to feed the bears and promote the zoo's upcoming Bear Affair conservation day Saturday and Washington state's Bear Awareness Week, June 4-12.

Grizzly bears have been listed as a threatened species since 1975, although they were briefly delisted in 2007 before a lawsuit reinstated the protections.
