Grizzly Mother Sharing?

grizzly bear and cubsThis photo also directly below the viewing platform shows a mother grizzly bear NOT wanting to share a salmon with her first year cubs. The number one priority of a grizzly with first year cubs is her own health. If she does not have sufficient body fat she will not be able to nurse and this reduces the survival rate. Once that issue has been achieved the sharing will start and every one will be happy (especially the guest I had who thought this was not a very good mother).
