Young Boars in the Grizzly Bear World face a lot of obstacles. This young Male has been constantly on the Move in his space/territory as he successfully manages to avoid larger Grizzlies and feed himself in a popular area. He was one of the "3 Amigos" from 2019. His siblings are also in this area, but they seem to be preferring distance from Him now at this age. His Mother was very Gifted with size and experience that She seemed to have passed on to this young fella.
These 2 Grizzly Bear Siblings were of a group of 3, but just these two stayed together while the third one ventured out on his own. So far, these two have been doing well bouncing on and through territorial edges of many larger Bears. Here you can also see that you have to be bear aware everywhere as common hiking hubs contain many trail junctions often also used by Grizzly and Black Bears. We hope to see these two beautiful Bears continue to do well in this amazing space.
The Biggest Beautiful Grizzly Sow we have seen in this area appears late in an evening, much to our Delight! Hopefully, She will pair up with an equally awesome Male during this Grizzly Bear mating season.
This is one of the most interesting pair of Grizzly Bears right now as no one seems to know. We have heard that they are Twins, a Mating Pair, but what we witnessed today.. possibly a Mum with a Teenage Cub. Regardless.. they are wonderful to Witness.
These two Grizzly Bears have travelled quite a distance over the last week. Originally, they were thought to be Siblings, but were seen Mating, so it is possible that they are an early Mating Pair. They could also simply be Siblings that are acting out natural instincts present during this time of year. It is early Bear Mating Season.
These Grizzly Cubs are looking good after hibernation. Here they go for a Swim in Athabasca River, moving around quite a bit early in the season. Athabasca River is not yet high or too powerful as we have not had very many hot days, forcing fast Spring Mountain runoff. The Grizzly Cubs were newborns in 2019, now 3 years old and with one less sibling than last summer. The Grizzly Siblings could have parted ways due to Male/Female differences being more evident, which is common as they become this age.
