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 on the Alaska Highway I realized it wasn't a grizzly so did a quick uturn and started taking pictures out my car window.

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.
