Grizzly Bear Sow
This Grizzly Bear sow was photographed in the high alpine meadows of Yellowstone National Park. She had Two cubs with her that I made sure to keep a constant eye on to be sure I didn’t come between her and them. Even though female bears are very focused mothers, most cubs don’t survive to become adults. Mother grizzly bears will take their cubs to remote areas or places where the habitat is less productive and less likely to attract other bears.
