Default Grizzly bear photo's

Sent to me by a friend. I thought some here might enjoy the photos.
----- Okanagan on October 12, 2007 while conducting a post harvest inspection near Strutell Creek (south-west of Keefer Lake), east of Vernon and Cherryville, BC.



I first spotted this grizzly bear in a plantation; she was about 20 meters from us. After realizing this mother had a cub, we briskly headed to our truck which was parked about 200 meters from where we first noticed her. We
realized she was headed towards our parked truck so we waited for her. To our surprise and for our enjoyment she appeared on the road with three cubs. The photos were taken by Dean Foisy. Please enjoy this majestic animal and notice the silver tipped hair. This animal can be aggressive and deserves great respect so I don't suggest getting this close if you encounter one.

Always good to see a healthy grizzly family at the end of the first year. No less than three cubs too! Fantastic. I have yet to see a grizz....

Awesome photos. I would think a mother with 3 cubs would be an extremely rare occurrence.

Not yet anyways!! At least not me. But I've heard of several encounters with aggressive grizzlies in Strutell in the last couple years.

Here's my Grizz closeup from last summer, up near Golden:



Fortunately, forestry workers weren't on his menu either...
