Grizzly mother sharing with triplets

Grizzly bears sharing salmon

The first year grizzly cubs we encounter in the viewing area of
Knight’s Inlet British Columbia are not normally able to catch their own salmon. Especially when the fishing requires them to be in the deeper water adjacent to the viewing platform, deep for them but not their mother. The adult grizzlies are able to pick salmon off the bottom that died because of the low water this summer that permitted the water temperature to rise and reduced the oxygen level to drop. Our viewing platform is located on the Glendale River, which is located, and hour and fifteen minute boat ride up Knight Inlet from the lodge.
