This photo is either a mother Grizzly with triplets or the middle bear (cub) has a very long and twisted body. Triplets are not uncommon in Grizzly Bear Lodge’s viewing area but they are allot more work for the mother grizzly at this time of the year. That extra mouth to feed and one more cub to keep track of in an area with many other bears means less time to fish. On this day there were other mothers and cubs in the fishing pool and it took time for this family to join the group and feel comfortable enough to start fishing.
At the same time the grizzly bear was walking up river on yesterday’s post there was another bear in the holding pool fishing. This holding area may have over a thousand salmon in it and some bears get frustrated because the deep water makes it hard to fish. The experienced bears sit and let the salmon swim close or they just pick up the wounded and dying salmon that drift down from the bears fishing up stream.
