The famed Grizzly 399 and her four cubs caused morning commuter traffic to grind to a halt as they crossed Highway 22 near the entrance to Skyline Ranch. The family of five eventually disappeared into the brush, cruised through the subdivision and made their way south.

She’s smart - the video showed her picking up on something that made her turn away from crossing the hwy there.

I believe this is our new reality for that area, the grizzlies, and believe that we are all capable of cohabiting the area - people need to learn how to do that. Our family has personal experience with that around the cabin already with black bears, then the uptick of elk herds followed by an increase in the # of their natural predators. Bears feed off of the resulting carcasses, so it’s all part of the circle of wildlife survival. And this is their land, too. God bless and good luck to 399 and her yearlings.
