... How old is Pepper?

Tom
Pepper was born this winter, so he/she is probably 4 or 5 months old.

Just got word that Felicia and her remaining cub who people have named Pepper are reunited after 4 weeks apart. :D
Wow, that is really great news! It's really amazing Pepper was able to survive on his own that long.

Thanks for sharing the update!!

I was over there on Sunday. The cub was by Turpin Meadows, Felicia was near the Holmes Cave trailhead about 3 miles east. Felicia looked and moved ok. If they don't find each other it doesn't bode well for cub #2.

Wonderful captures of the interactions among the sow, and the cubs. I really like the image of the cub climbing on the back of the sow. Your images shows she is a very patient and loving mother. Good sequence of photos this grizzly family. Very lovely.

Unfortunately, I read Felicia got separated from her cub again last week -
"On June 18, a private citizen abruptly hazed her again while separated from her cub. There is an investigation on-going involving a Jackson Hole Security truck in the latter hazing. "

Jackson Hole News & Guide also reported that she might have been hit by a car. However Felicia is still alive.
Hope she and the cub will find each other.

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.

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.

Wonderful shots! Love the whole series.
So sad that cub was lost -- same day as Obsidian lost one of hers, I think.
