Alaska 2010 - Katmai Sow and Cubs
We captured this Grizzly Bear Sow teaching her cubs how to fish. It was amazing to watch. It almost seemed like she was talking to them as they fished. Unfortunately, they didn't catch anything for the 3 hours that we watched them. We talked with a park ranger... this sow is very unique. Her cubs are 3 1/2 years old, and she has not chased them off yet. Typically sows only raise their cubs for 2 years before sending them out into the real world.
