Grouse Mountain's Grizzlies emerge from their Den

Grinder and Coola are finally awake after their 153 day nap. 

To the delight of many visitors, the 2 Grouse Mountain residents emerged from their den yesterday morning and played around in the snow.

Beautiful spring weather welcomed the 17 year old bears who have lived at Grouse Mountain since 2001 when they were rescued after being orphaned during separate incidents in Bella Coola and Invermere.

The recent hibernation period has earned a tie for the longest since their arrival at Grouse Mountains Refuge for Endangered Wildlife.

Hibernation through the winter is a natural way for grizzlies to conserve energy during a time of low food availability.

Grouse Mountain visitors can now watch the bears playing and exploring their habitat through the warmer months.
