Meet Speedy the griz

She is about 300 maybe 350 lbs has big feet, not a large bearSpeedy4

She is pretty complacientSpeedy5

Sports jewlery used to wear a tracking collar Speedy

Thinks she is the sexy Queen of the Chilkoot river which is only 1.5 miles long. She will clear out every fisherman or other bear on it but doesn’t seem to mind anyone with out a fishing pole or fishing gearSpeedy2

But this is her true self……at least to me…not to anyone else, lol. She has walked through my camp everyday. Has seen me with my dogs talking to others with their dogs. she has been 30 ft or closer to many people.  Well mannered knows the rules. Unlike her kicked off trouble maker twins who were seen ripping apart a bunch of life jackets this morning. Or the nervous and very dangerous mom with new this year cub.Speedy3

    Obviously a beauty. I think 30 feet is a bit close, even for a nice bear. Wasn’t the rule of thumb 100 yards?

    Nice pix.. She needs to bulk up! You can practically see her bones.
    Love the shots of her shaking off the water.

      Sexy beast!! In the one week of total salmon fest I observed, she got to where her skin jiggled and big belly. So was cranking on the calories fast.
      Saw a black bear today so fat could barely walk more than 2 mile an hr down the road.
