Glacier Bear in Yukon

8 August 2012

When I saw this bear from a distance, I assumed it was a blonde grizzly. As I drove by I realized it wasn't a grizzly so did a quick u-turn and started taking pictures. Alaska Fish and Game confirmed that this is a Glacier Bear. Apparently not common in Yukon.

It likely tolerated me due to the road kill in the ditch.
