Bad Rap

Grizzly 610 grazing in a field of summer wildfowers. We’ve noticed a number of folks inaccurately referring to Grizzly 399’s daughter as aggressive this past year so we thought that we would set the record straight having observed her for so long.Grizzly 610 likes her personal space a touch more than some of the other Teton and Yellowstone grizzly bears.If you go chasing her in to the brush or the trees either on foot or in a vehicle, she will very gently (by grizzly standards) remind you that you are in her personal space and she would like you to remove yourself post haste from said space. She has never put her claws or teeth on anyone, she just wants you to let her do her. We don’t think that is too much to ask.
