Beach Feeding Grizzly Bears

Of course Grizzly Bears enjoy feeding on salmon.  Salmon is not the only seafood that they enjoy, however.  At low tide the beaches are covered in protein rich shellfish.  This mother and cub are feeding on mussels.  The bears chew the mussels shell and all.  On a calm, quiet day you can often hear the distinctive “crunching” of shells.
