Bears of Knight Inlet


Every tour from the lodge involves wildlife viewing in this case a rather large black bear.  This viewing was on a morning grizzly bear trip up Knight Inlet.  We leave the lodge about eight o’clock and it takes a little over an hour to reach the grizzly watching area but along the way we frequently see black bears.  This one enjoying breakfast on the beach, turning over rocks, eating barnacles or muscles, small crabs or anything that moves, as well as seaweed.  This is a good-sized bear and notice the white patch on the chest it is common.  “OK so we can’t all be grizzlies!”  was Harold Bailey’s comment for the photo he provided from his UK was the first week of September.
