This Grizzly Bear came in, grabbed what He could, and hastily ran back into Forest cover.. spending only about 3 minutes out in the open. We heard another Bear.. a Black Bear, was seen on this Moose carcass earlier on this day. There was apparently no signs of struggle on the far side of the Lake shore, and the Moose Bull was very large for this area of the Canadian Rockies.. so, likely not killed by these Bears. *We are cropping quite a bit from a long distance and Thank You for your patience with Us there.
It is Berry Season now and that means a time to be Extra Careful when out in Favorite Shared Spaces. Bears can become very focused on eating Berries and when in dense bush, Surprise Encounters are Far More Common. If a Bear knows you are there, or approaching on a trail, the chances of a difficult situation is less likely. Be Safe out there!
Grateful to see this amazing Grizzly Family for a short appearance before they head up in altitude towards new green growth. We may see them again during berry season, but just knowing they are doing well is wonderful. As newborns, these cubs had something about them that was particularly amazing as you can see.
The Biggest Grizzly Seen in the Area So Far is such a magnificent sight. We thought a little tribute to this amazing Apex creature was in order, so here is a good look at this incredible fella. We are not sure, but He may have recently been seen mating with one of the biggest Sows in the area. If so, their offspring will be exceptionally gifted in the size department.
It Appears the 3 Amigo's Mum is now raising/protecting 2 newborns(coy). Back in 2019, she had 3 that looked exactly like these 2(little "Spirit" faces), but She was quite a bit Heavier at the same time of year back then. The cooler Spring sure has seemed to delay their ability to put on weight. Hopefully, we get lots of moisture in the immediate and this Family finds a safe space far away from the Highways.
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.
