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.
Early June with a mother and cub on the beach. The cub is still too small to turn over rocks and is dependent on mother’s milk for nourishment. Both mother and cub are very light coloured tending toward blonde. This colour will change as the season progresses and they have access to salmon. At this age the cub remains close to mother partly in fear of other bears but more to learn how to survive.
