Grizzly 399 is alive!! and she’s emerged with a new cub!

For all of us who have had the privilege of witnessing this matriarch with her offspring, you can image our horror upon hearing that a hunter was claiming to have killed this spectacular “mom” earlier in the year (2016). We now know that Grizzly 399 (“Blondie”) lives! She emerged from her den at 10:13am on May 10th, 2016 and has done so with a brand new baby cub!  This tremendous news fills us with such heartfelt joy!

[I had the good fortune of witnessing and photographing Grizzly 399 with her three cubs (shown above) in May 2015 during a Spring snowfall. It was an awesome experience! – Deb]
