White grizzly cub video Hey all,
We're just about to finish things up here in Glendale Cove for the bear season. It's been a season of fantastic weather and the bears, dolphins and whales have been really spectacular. This area never disappoints.
Stealing the show in the September and October has been our local celebrity bear cub who is quite uniquely coloured. I've seen light cubs before but never one as uniformly creamy white as this one. It's very common for new cubs to have whitish highlights, especially under the chin, chest and shoulders areas, but this cub is more cream than brown it seems. Really quite spectacular as you can see in the video (top left of article) I've attached. The mother of this one and his/her two siblings (we think it's a her) has quite the reputation in the area as well. She is by far the most dominant one around at the moment and it's usual to see all the others bears giving her a wide birth. She has a lot of mouths to feed, not to mention herself and that tends to make a bear a bit more aggressive.
Hopefully she'll keep the cubs safe and bring them back next year for us to appreciate again.
It will be sad to say goodbye to the bears and staff of Knight Inlet Lodge as it always is. We had an amazing team of guides this season, our cooks were absolutely amazing, and our dock staff kept things ship-shape and entertaining. Every lodge needs a Kemshaw! Harold as always was the unsung, quiet hero -- the man is responsible for so much around here. I'm looking forward to working with them all next season.
I'm off to the Antarctic next for my winter work, but will hopefully meet some of you blog readers next bear season at the lodge.
