Grizzly Bears Eating Lush Vegetation
A lot of rain in the Rockies(July 2019) has ignited the landscape with lush vegetation. Grizzly Bears may completely avoid areas that humans frequent, leaving many berries uneaten. Even though less energy-rich, it is more reliable for Bears to feed on insects and vegetation, however, a mostly vegetarian diet does require a very efficient process of consumption.
A Grizzly Bear focused on insects, even with an abundant Berry crop just as accessible in Jasper.

We don't think we have seen this Grizzly before, but she was certainly not shy about her travel, as you can see. Luckily, she didn't spend too much time near the highway and took a turn North.. possibly to a Canadian Rockies area that is very isolated to prep for her Hibernation. It's nice to see a Big Belly on a Bear this time of Year.
