Brown Bear Story: Marie G

“Late in the evening on 7/14/15 an unknown sow and her tiny spring cub showed up on the far side of the river at Brooks Falls. There were several large males nearby. After a few minutes they tried to leave but couldn’t climb the steep bank. It seemed they were trapped and I was concerned for the cub. I’d only been watching the bears for a week and I didn’t know what to expect.


After awhile the mother bear and her cub got away. I had no idea that it was only the beginning of the adventures of 273 and her beloved cub “Velcro.” They stole my heart, right from the beginning.” –¬†Marie G
