In the spring quests on the tours from Grizzly Bear Lodge view the bears in the sedge grass. Sedge grass stalks are spiky, wide and stiff but the sedge grass is up to 25% protein, and this is the reason why grizzly bears prefer eating it to other grasses. The spring a grizzly bears diets consist of approximately 70% of sedge grass to replenish their lack of proteins during hibernation. Diets shift with the seasons, as summer approaches the berries start to replace the sedge grass and fall brings the salmon into the Glendale River.
This grizzly bear in the water below the viewing stands on a Knight Inlet BC river was taking a rest. It had caught and eaten several salmon in the first half-hour of our viewing time and decided to lie down on the job. After eating this salmon it moved off to the near by bush possibly to have a nap.Visit our Blog
