Big Grizzly Mum "Pretty Face", and Her Spring Cubs Appear at the Lake

"Pretty Face" is a very Big and Capable Grizzly Bear that has shown an incredible temperament and restraint so far, while bringing Her Spring Cubs out among so many people. While everyone loves to see this beautiful Grizzly Bear Family, we hope she finds a Great, Peaceful space away from people and other Bears very soon.

Great to See Grizzly Mum and Playful Yearlings Doing Well into Year 2

We witnessed this new Grizzly Bear Family last Year and it is Great to see them doing well this year. In another year or two, these Cubs will be on their own, but this type of relaxed play says they are happy and healthy right now.

Care Free Spring Grizzly Bear Cubs

Well-Fed Grizzly Bear Cubs are more playful more than malnourished ones. Grizzly Bear Cubs also play without vocalizing, but you may hear their playful "puffing". Grizzly Cubs play often looks like fighting but fighting is noisy, where as play like this is silent and careful.

Grizzly Bear Cubs Battle of Learning to Swim is Inescapable

In this area of Canada's Rockies, Grizzly Bears cross Athabasca River frequently. When the river water is higher and faster this time of year however, it could be life threatening for Spring Cubs. This Big Grizzly Mum decides not to risk it yet as she senses the cubs are just not ready.

Biggest Grizzly Mum Shows Up with Newborn Cubs

This Grizzly Mum has Awesome genetics and is possibly the largest Sow we have witnessed in this area. She mated with a Huge Boar last season, so these Grizzly Cubs have Great Genetics on their side. She has lost a lot of weight while travelling a great distance after hibernation and supporting two cubs. We hope she will be back in fine form very shortly and this becomes a successful Family!

Huge Mature Grizzly Mum with Newborns

This is probably the Most Mature and Largest Grizzly Sow in this area. She, or her Sister/Daughter can be easily confused with which Bear raised the 3 Amigos. Regardless, it was a very pleasant surprise to see this Awesome Grizzly Bear with 3 Cubs of the Year/Newborns.

First Sighting of Mature Grizzly Mum with New Offspring

It Appears the 3 Amigo's Mum is now raising/protecting 2 newborns(coy). Back in 2019, she had 3 that looked exactly like these 2(little "Spirit" faces), but She was quite a bit Heavier at the same time of year back then. The cooler Spring sure has seemed to delay their ability to put on weight. Hopefully, we get lots of moisture in the immediate and this Family finds a safe space far away from the Highways.

An Amazing Grizzly Family Today and as Newborns

Here is our first sighting of this Amazing Grizzly Family Today and as Newborns. They looked like they weathered hibernation very well! The Family were seen on Mountain Peaks in late Spring and now with some slight adjustments to their territory, down in the Valley Bottom. Many call this Famous Mother "Grizzma" as she is very well known, such a Beautiful Mother Bear, and has an amazing temperament. Along with some footage of Grizzma and Her Cubs today, we have included our First Sighting of them back in 2020, as newborns. We Hope Cubs and Mum stay together for the remainder of this year for their safety, but we can see that it may be difficult for all of them to occupy the same Den when that time comes.

Big Beautiful Grizzly Sow First Sighting this Year!

Our First Sighting of this Big Girl out of Hibernation was a nice surprise. She was in Great condition.. looking really Big and Strong as She begins her travels. Her Paws and Nose were never still for long as she searches for scents of substance. The beginning shows a clip of her Hunting Ground Squirrels along with when she had a newborn Cub Last Year, to compare. Her Gifted structure looks even bigger and fuller this year. We were hoping to see Her trying Motherhood again this year, but no luck on that account. Regardless, it was an incredible encounter that took place in a perfect setting with lots of safe space to observe. She is a Great Teacher that the Rockies are Lucky to Have! *We had a little fun on the beginning of this.. hope it brings a smile your way.

Grizzly Cub of the Year in Hyperphagia

The Fall months witness Grizzly Bears eating and drinking almost nonstop to put on weight in preparation for winter hibernation. During this stage called "hyperphagia", Grizzly Bears may consume ten times as many calories as they need during the spring and summer if they are going to den up in good condition. This shows the same Grizzly Bear Family as they were this past July and now much larger during hyperphagia, very actively digging for what we think might be tubers. Large amounts of water are needed to process these large amounts of food and rid the body of nitrogenous waste.

After hyperphagia, when metabolic processes start to change in preparation for hibernation, Grizzly Bears eat less but continue to drink to purge body wastes. Resting 22 or more hours per day just before hibernation(often near water), sleeping heart rates begin to fall from 66-80 beats per minute to less than 22 beats per minute.

Grizzly Mum with Yearlings in the Grizzly Maze Cooling off in the Athabasca River

The most well tempered Grizzly Mum with her Yearlings in the Grizzly Maze has to do a dance between protecting her cubs from other Grizzlies, navigate a very high human traffic area, as well as insure they all get nutrition. Here, GrizzMa finds a safe space to cool off in the Athabasca River on a hot day.

16 month Old Grizzly Cub Siblings Wrestling in Jasper, Alberta

16 month Old Grizzly Cub Siblings Wrestling in Jasper Alberta today. (HD). We've been so lucky to witness these cubs learn and grow last year.. into this year. You can see them in our videos of last year, when they were in their 1st year. This Grizzly family has spent the majority of their time in the last 2 seasons not far from people in the Park, of course requiring delicate attention. We hope to witness them grow to full maturity as they continue to be some of Jasper's favorite ambassadors.

So glad we can immortalize these special moments. An amazing Grizzly Bear Mother with her playful newborn cubs and the following year as yearlings(now).

Grizzly and Her Newborns - First Sighting

Our First encounter with a special Grizzly Mother and her newborn cubs this year. She is such a patient and well tempered Grizzly sow and we are now lucky enough to witness her with her second set of Cubs over the last several years. It was an exciting day as we were not certain she was okay over the Winter, but clearly she was. Grizzly Bears produce only two or three cubs every three years and their survival rate is unfortunately very low. Everyone in this location of Canada's Rockies will be Cheering this family on in 2020!

New Grizzly Bear Mum with 3 Tiny Newborns Appear in the Grizzly Maze

This is a first appearance of this new Grizzly Bear Mum and 3 tiny cubs of the year. We did not know this Bear and she was quite elusive to the other 20+ Grizzly Bears that also occupied this territory. Their story has just begun and we hope they are able to find lots of nutrition and safety in the immediate.

Grizzly Bear Mum with very Healthy Newborn Cub First Appears

Grizzly Bear Mum tends to her nutritional needs while the healthiest newborn Bear Cub(cub of the year) we have seen makes a first appearance. Unfortunately, this grizzly cub does not have a sibling to play and "practice" with, but it shows the benefits of the food advantage a single cub has. This grizzly bear cub is not only very well fed, but seems to be very relaxed close to Mum.

Grizzly Mother and Cubs feeding on an Elk Carcass in Athabasca River - Jasper, Canada Rockies

Grizzly Mother and Cubs feeding on an Elk Carcass in Athabasca River - Jasper, Alberta. Canada's Rockies - using some Digi-Zoom (sorry for the degradation). Many have asked us if this is an Elk or Moose and we believe it is an Elk, as this video demonstrates. Parks Canada protected the area to keep both people and the bears safe during the period that this family occupied an area commonly used by hikers and rafters.

Identifying Grizzly Bear Mothers in care of Cubs of the Year

Identifying a Grizzly Mother in care of Cubs of the Year(COY) can be tricky sometimes as the Cubs are initially quite small, even blending into grass just a foot long, as you can see here. Grizzly Bear Cubs are born in their Mother's winter den while she is in hibernation(during January or February). Just a few months later, Mother Grizzly will emerge from her den, guiding her new cubs out into her natural territory.

We initially thought this very mature Grizzly Sow was a Boar as she was large and no cubs were visible for several minutes. Not only was this beautiful Grizzly a Mother, but caring for three Cubs of the Year.

At 0:52, a loud flock of geese flew very low overhead, appearing to trigger a bit of confused defense behavior in Mum for a few seconds.. adding to the reasons why these beautiful wild creatures always require lots of room. (we apologize for some shake, it was an encounter not expected)

These two Cute Grizzly Cubs of the Year are seen here working on their tree climbing skills. We found this moment to be pretty special so we thought we would share.

Gentle Hazing of a Grizzly Bear with Cubs in a Canadian Park

Hazing Bears in Canada's Parks is intended to have an immediate response - to change the Bear's behavior and move them out of an area instantly. Hazing can be a one-time event or part of adverse conditioning, teaching them to give way when people are nearby. Bears are typically quick to learn and the more you are around them, the more you appreciate this. Gentle hazing methods as seen in this video include shooting bears with fish oil based paint balls, which serves two purposes.. to Save Bears' lives as well as keep people safe.
