Black grizzlies


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.

    Where did you see them, Alistair? 8 meters is pretty close. I know I wouldn’t have been brave enough, but you certainly got an amazing shot.
