All bears in North America are excellent swimmers. Some people even consider Polar Bears a marine animal, due to the large distances that they swim. The mouth of Knight Inlet is dotted with many small islands and channels. When food becomes scarce, or competition with other bears arises these bears will simply swim to another island or the mainland. Thanks to Brien for the photo.
Necessary because the grizzlies already fishing for salmon are a mother with two cubs (look closely at the top right corner of the photo) and another large female. This bear is a four or five year old male and they are always cautious around other grizzlies especially a mother with cubs.Visit our Blog
