A Beautiful Spring Grizzly Bear Family known very well, captivates us with some quiet peaceful time.
This is probably the Most Mature and Largest Grizzly Sow in this area. She, or her Sister/Daughter can be easily confused with which Bear raised the 3 Amigos. Regardless, it was a very pleasant surprise to see this Awesome Grizzly Bear with 3 Cubs of the Year/Newborns.
Here is our first sighting of this Amazing Grizzly Family Today and as Newborns. They looked like they weathered hibernation very well! The Family were seen on Mountain Peaks in late Spring and now with some slight adjustments to their territory, down in the Valley Bottom. Many call this Famous Mother "Grizzma" as she is very well known, such a Beautiful Mother Bear, and has an amazing temperament. Along with some footage of Grizzma and Her Cubs today, we have included our First Sighting of them back in 2020, as newborns. We Hope Cubs and Mum stay together for the remainder of this year for their safety, but we can see that it may be difficult for all of them to occupy the same Den when that time comes.
The second part of An amazing Grizzly Family well known in this area feeding on an Elk Carcass that supplied nutrient dense food for them for about a week. This Grizzly Sow has been an incredible educator to so many people as she raises several sets of Cubs in a space shared by people in Nature. The Cubs of the Year even show quite an interest in this meat now, after observing Mum for a couple days. We have done what we could to increase the quality and flow as we were using a lot of digital zoom in the evenings during these memorable encounters. No other Bears challenged this Grizzly family for the elk carcass. This Mother Grizzly and 2 different sets of Cubs can be seen in many of our videos over the last several years.
An amazing Grizzly Family well known in this area, find an Elk Carcass that supplied nutrient dense food for them for about a week. This Grizzly Sow has been an incredible educator to so many people as she raises several sets of Cubs in a space shared by people in Nature. Sorry for the Atmospheric Distortion. Those of you who have been with us for some time may remember this.. we've done what we could to increase the quality and flow as we were using a lot of digital zoom with older equipment in the evenings during these memorable encounters. No other Bears challenged this Grizzly family, but several eagles and coyotes visited the carcass at times. This Mother Grizzly and 2 different sets of Cubs can be seen in many of our videos over the last several years.
Grizzly Bear Mum tends to her nutritional needs while the healthiest newborn Bear Cub(cub of the year) we have seen makes a first appearance. Unfortunately, this grizzly cub does not have a sibling to play and "practice" with, but it shows the benefits of the food advantage a single cub has. This grizzly bear cub is not only very well fed, but seems to be very laid back here today.
This Grizzly Bear Family with an incredible temperament is well loved in this area of Canada's Rockies. Just about to embark on Grizzly Bear mating season, Mum will have to deal with more Boars entering the area, threatening the safety of her cubs. One Boar has already been pursuing this Family over the last several days. We were very lucky to have some rare moments with this amazing Grizzly Family before they may have to disappear as mating season adjusts the mood.
A Rare occurrence.. Grizzly Bear Cubs from Newborns(sorry for the shake) to Sub-Adults. It's very rare for Grizzly Bear Cubs to make it this far, and especially 3 Siblings together. They just left their Mother a short time ago and are finding their space together. Here the Grown Cubs become separated, but never venture far as we witness them reunite late the next evening. Their exceptional noses prove to be their most powerful tool in keeping together. As a Unit, these Grizzly Bear Cubs stand a much better chance of survival.
Our First encounter with a special Grizzly Mother and her newborn cubs this year. She is such a patient and well tempered Grizzly sow and we are now lucky enough to witness her with her second set of Cubs over the last several years. It was an exciting day as we were not certain she was okay over the Winter, but clearly she was. Grizzly Bears produce only two or three cubs every three years and their survival rate is unfortunately very low. Everyone in this location of Canada's Rockies will be Cheering this family on!
Initially a surprise encounter, we have never seen this Grizzly Bear Sow with 3 Tiny Cubs of the Year Before Today. The most impressive Mother Bear we have seen to date, with 3 of the cutest little Grizzly Cubs.
Grizzly Bear Cubs of the Year Playing and Exploring Canada's Rockies in 2020. These two Grizzly cubs are so entertaining to watch while they Play. Cubs of the year mainly focus on three things.. Mother's milk, Exploring/learning, and Play!
