A bear looking poised to ride a jetski is apparently an "only in Alaska moment".

Photos of an Alaska brown bear hopping on board a Sea Doo were taken near Nanek lake on the Alaska Peninsula, reported the Alaska Dispatch. 

Graham Morrison, of Morrison Guide Service, saw the bear in the ready-to-ride pose while it tried to get its mother's attention.

The young bear wanted her to share a fish she had caught. It was unsuccessful in convincing her.

It climbed onto the watercraft to get closer to her, growled, and then fell into the water, Morrison said.

Morrison told Alaska Dispatch the jetski was unharmed during the bear encounter.
