Grizzly bear cub in snowAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
An orphaned grizzly bear cub photographed on the bank of the Chilkat River in the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve near Haines, Alaska. There is a strong possibility that this was the orphaned cub that had to be put down by wildlife troopers two months later after a non-hibernating malnourished cub was searching the nearby village of Klukwan for food. That bear was put down due to the very poor health condition that the bear was in. That bear, like the one in this photo was missing fur, likely ripped away when it slept on frozen ground.
