Wildlife on Video Grizzly Bear Cub Now Dealing with Life Alone

Grizzly bear cubs typically leave their mother between the ages of 1.5 to 2.5 years old. We have now seen numerous Grizzly Bear Cubs stay with their Mother right into their 4th year, however. This is a gradual process that occurs when the cubs become more independent and capable of surviving on their own. During this time, the mother bear may begin to show signs of aggression or intolerance towards her cubs to encourage them to become more self-reliant. The exact timing can vary depending on environmental factors, availability of food, and individual circumstances. It can be a very tough time for young Grizzly Bears as there are often other much larger Bears they have to evade and compete with.. possibly the toughest time for a Cub.

In Spring and early Summer, grizzly bears consume a variety of greens as part of their diet. Grizzly bears feed on new shoots and blades of grass that emerge during the spring and a wide range of herbaceous plants and forbs. These include plants like dandelions, clovers, fireweed, cow parsnip, and other flowering plants that grow in meadows, clearings, and open areas. Plant species consumed by grizzly bears vary based on their location and the availability of vegetation in their habitat. Grizzly bears are opportunistic feeders and can alter their diet according to seasonal changes and local food availability.

Wildlife on Video - A Magnificent Elk Bull being very active during the Rut in the Canadian Rockies. This Elk rut video is part 2 of 2 of this Bull and his harem as aggression and herding instincts are very high.

Wildlife on Video - Bighorn Rams Fighting for Mating rights During the Bighorn Sheep Rut. The larger Bighorns with superior genetics are able to battle like this for quite a long time during the bighorn sheep mating season. Several larger Rams are seen here battling for the right to mate on this day.

Wildlife on Video - Bighorn headbutting at the height of the Bighorn Sheep Rut or Mating Season. Lots of Bighorn Sheep Ram Rut fighting was witnessed this year and this is some of the Best Bighorn Ram Headbutt battles we have ever witnessed.

Wildlife on Video - The Elk Rut is just a couple months away. Elk Bulls are putting on a lot of weight right now as their testosterone increases and they have access to much more nutritious food. Bugles, Battles and Breeding will be taking over this Beautiful area as Bulls fight to claim or hold their territories' throne.

Wildlife on Video - Elk Bull Fights are numerous during the Rut in Canada's Rockies, but this one was especially striking. Here is a close look at the Largest Elk Bull in this area.. first, a couple clips over the last month, before today's marathon fight with this younger rival. The younger rival has not been stressed near as much during the height of the rutting season, and clearly had the stamina to outlast one of this areas most dominant bulls today. The Bull that conceded defeat today has been the most dominant elk bull in this area now for years. This well known King has had to battle and run off rival bulls on almost a daily basis over the last month and a half, of which shows athleticism and genetics that are extremely rare. We suspect he decided it was more important to preserve his energy as very few cows remain in estrus. He did sustain some injuries here, but will likely be back to fight another day.

Wildlife on Video - We were lucky to witness this huge bull courting a receptive cow during the Moose Rut. The active peak of rutting season for moose is generally the first two weeks of October. Farther North in the hemisphere is earlier as South is a bit later. Moose bulls may court cows for several days during their mating season. The largest and heaviest of the Deer family can often be seen in groups during this time, with both Bulls and Cows potentially competing for mates. Moose Bulls will chase off or even fight rivals for mating rights, while cows that occupy the same area may also chase each other away from a favorite bull moose. You can hear some vocalizations between the bull and cow along with seeing some very rare behavior in these gentle giants.
