Most of my time at work the last while is focused on keeping the wildlife and human visitors far enough apart that they do not harm each other.
It took a bit of doing, but we eventually coaxed her down with an inviting hole cut into the fence.
This was all done under the interested gaze of a young male grizzly who wondered what those cubs would taste like. Fortunately, black bear cubs climb trees, and grizzlies don’t – generally.
(Note: photos with the dark circles around them were taken through a spotting scope.)
Another Mama grizzly showed up at the Chateau Lake Louise to show off her new twins, coming down from the hills for the first time this season. Unfortunately, my hands were fairly full of bear spray, cracker gun, shotgun, and radio – all while attempting to hold the crowds of humans at bay, so there was no time for any photos of her this time.
Weekends off have been really lousy weather, so even though tempting, the camping rigs have maintained their spots in the driveway. Perhaps July will bring some summer in these parts?
