GTNP Grizzly Boar - spring 2019

Post by Nikon_nerd » Thu Jun 13, 2019 10:28 am

We saw this guy one evening when we went looking for Felicia. We found him near the area where we had observed Felicia the previous two days. He was acting super strange. Running from one side of the highway constantly sniffing the air. He would go up in the trees a bit, and then come back out and cross the highway and do the same thing. He was foaming pretty heavily from the mouth. I'd never seen a grizzly display such erratic behavior before. He was constantly moving, at times quite fast. All of these images were shot hand held because he was moving so quickly and erratically. We speculated that he was looking for Felicia, but couldn't find her. We suspect this is the boar that killed one of her cubs.

Great shots, Nikon! When and where were these taken? Also, could you give me more details about Felicia? Have not heard of her before. Is she the sow with the coy just outside the park heading up toward Togwottee? Thanks.
