Brown Bear Story: calliopejane

“Back in 2014, on my first trip to Katmai National Park, we did a float down to Big Creek and King Salmon. Along theway we saw a yearling and her injured mother who had a snare cutting into her neck. Right after I got home I saw a post on Explore that the injured bear was Divot and that she and her cub had returned to Brooks. A complicated plan was put in place to dart Divot and remove the snare from her neck. To see her return not only healthy but with three chubby cubs warms my heart.” –¬†calliopejane
