[FACTOID: This was thought to be a rare Kermode Bear, also known as a Spirit Bear. However it is a grizzly bear. Their fur is grizzled, that is, lighter at the ends than at the roots. Yeah, Grizzly all day. Rounded ears, dish shaped face, shoulder hump. They can certainly be hard to distinguish sometimes]. }}PARTICULARLY BEAUTIFUL TYPE BEAR.
The Kermode bear (pron. kerr-MO-dee), also known as a "spirit bear" (particularly to the Native tribes of Alaska), is a subspecies of the American Black Bear living in the central and north coast of British Columbia, Canada. It is noted for about 1/10 of their population having white or cream-coloured coats.
Brown Bear in the Grass (by toryjk)...Grizzly bear cubs will run to their mother for protection. Black and Brown bear cubs are taught to run for the trees. This may have something to do with more people being killed by Grizzlys, than Black and Brown numbers being low on this issue.
