Pom Pom

Meet “Pom Pom” the grizzly bear, who had quite the funny, shaggy, akimbo coat this time of year.  This was early July, when grizzly bears are blowing their winter coats.  Pom Pom had lost almost all her thick, fluffy winter fur except for a huge mass of frizzy hair on her hump and a large swirl of hair above her hip.  Grizzly bears can look vastly different depending on the time of year since they grow such thick coats to survive wintering in their dens.  Pom Pom is a young female, probably about five or six years old.

She liked to hang out grazing on sedge grass close to our camp, so we passed by her quite often.  I couldn’t help but smile every time I saw her goofy coat.
