As I mentioned, we weren’t the only ones out there fishing for salmon in Valdez. We were joined by many in the animal kingdom, and this one paid a visit that very first night. A mama grizzly bear with….count those cubs!
Your eyes are not deceiving you. This is the mother of 4!
She would mosey on down to the water, effortlessly snag a fish, and munch away with her baby bears right along with her.
I have seen black bears in the wild before, but this was my first grizzly. I couldn’t take my eyes off them. It was simply amazing to witness.
And while I couldn’t take my eyes off of her…she was keeping her eye on the 2-legged critters as well. After all, she is a mama grizzly, and no one will mess with her!
