When I saw black grizzly bears three years ago, I was puzzled for I hadn’t realized that black was even an option for grizzlies. It is, but a somewhat uncommon one. When a black grizzly family was seen this week, it was only about three hundred metres from where the earlier family had been seen.
A family of black grizzly bears was foraging for kokanee salmon in a stream.
The sow eyed an intruder suspiciously.
She sent her cubs towards the woods.
When she stood to get a better look, she provided me with a calendar-ready picture.
