Each year, it’s especially exciting to see bears we know especially well show up a year older. Today, it was 12-year-old Jewel and her four yearlings: females Ivy and Andrea and males Flynn and Fletcher. Jewel posed for a profile to show the bump on her muzzle that separates her from all the others. Flynn was nice to stand so the landowner could catch the chest blaze that identifies him. The yearlings all look in good shape.
Thank you for all you do.
