Old Grizzly Bear Male

grizzly bear boarThis very old grizzly bear had a snaggle tooth, most likely the result of a fight that busted his jaw.  I’ve witnessed at least two other old male grizzlies with clear signs of injury to their jaws that resulted in a tooth sticking outside of their mouths.  You can also see considerable scarring around this bear’s neck.

Despite his age, this grizzly bear was fishing vigorously for salmon at the mouth of a river.
