Comparing the photos in today’s and yesterday’s post they do not look like the same grizzly but the camera time stamp says they are the same. This is an August bear and does not have the fat layer it will have after feeding on salmon for September through October. This is noticeable by how low the bear is in the water is yesterday’s post. A fat bear would have much more of it’s back out of the water.
Black Bears are often seen in our area and are excellent climbers. Unlike the Grizzly Bears they have short, sharp claws and can easily climb tress and move over harsh steep terrain. This bear was spotted on the way up Knight Inlet on a steep rock face overlooking the water.Visit our Blog
