Sow and Cub
A grizzly bear and her cub forage for food in a meadow within Yellowstone National Park. Grizzlies are among the largest mammals in North America and can weigh from 300-800 pounds fully grown. They are also an endangered species, with only 1,500 bears left in the Continental US. These all live in the Northwest with the Yellowstone area supporting a population of about 600. Grizzlies are very protective of their young and may attack if they feel threatened.
