A particular solution of the equations for the propagation of a light beam in a bulk refractive medium is a bright stripe soliton with initial conditions that satisfy the saturable Kerr-like nonlinearity equation. When propagated numerically, this stripe soliton is unstable and decays into a set of filaments. The maximum intensity of a single filament is outputted at every propagation step and the subsequent data set is analyzed for low order chaotic behavior.
