Grizzly Bear Teenager

Grizzly Bear Brooks FallsA grizzly bear sub-adult waits on the sidelines of Brooks Falls.  This grizzly bear is probably three or four years old and possibly on his own for the first summer.  He was waiting on a small ledge of grass near the bottom of the falls.  Lots of inexperienced bears will wait downstream from the falls since older bears will drop their salmon scraps.  Of course this little bear will have to fight the ravens and gulls for the scraps!  I’ve watched quite a few bears eat tons of big pieces of fish just by scavenging downstream from the falls.  This little bear was too timid to even attempt to get near the actual falls.
