Felicia and Cub???

Post by billandkaren » Fri Aug 23, 2019 9:15 pm

Has anyone heard how the Grizzly sow, Felicia, and her cub are doing since they reunited? Any sightings?

I see them quite a bit. Pepper is getting a little bigger and looks healthy. They do move around a lot. In subsequent days I've seen them just East of the top of Togwotee Pass and the next day in the meadow by Flagstaff Rd. which is like 8 miles away. Then a couple of days later back up top.
I heard a rumor that there was a second Sow and Cub on the pass but I haven't seen them and I think it's just Felicia and Pepper being seen in different places.

Thanks for the update. Pepper is looking pretty good. We went over the pass twice this week and didn't see them but people were looking. That is truly an amazing story especially if Pepper makes it to adulthood.

Thanks for the video. Truly an amazing story. Makes you wonder what we don't know and understand about the animal world. And it makes me so happy that these magnificent animals have been saved from the trophy hunts, but for how long???

Bridger-Teton NF issued an advisory on these bears. People too close and suspected feeding them. Please respect the bears.

As far as anyone can tell, that "suspected feeding" is based on the fact that the sow stole one unattended stringer of fish.

I dunno. The press report uses the word AND

"Additionally, these bears may have already received food from humans and have accessed an unattended stringer of fish "

Yeah but I have talked to people who've been out there and no one ever could come up with any incident being reported where the bears had been fed.
