BBRB member K. Davis sees Grizzly in bear in Woody's Bottom
Comments re photo 45571 Finally indisputable photographic proof on Greater Bliss Bear
Kenny Davis writes:
After studying that picture of the Bliss Bear for a good while now. I have come to the conclusion that it is a Black Bear/Grizzly cross. There is no other explanation for the hump on its shoulders, a common characteristic of the Grizzly. But the short nose denotes Black Bear. It also appears to a case of Mange. - Kenny Davis, BRBB MemberKenny Davis. This is absolutely brilliant insight and so glad your are, but local BRBB experts who's actully studied the bear at close range in Woody's Bottom, unemcumbered by heavy camera equipment as Miz Victoria was, have found no trace of Ursus arctos horribilis. It a purebred registry eligible, Ursus cabellasos polystrenis.. Not fractious. I have seen the bear, but would concur that it may have case Mange. All the more we learn about the bear, however, the better. -EW
