Grizzly 399 cub

One of Grizzly 399’s subadult male offspring follows its mother through Grand Teton National Park in May, the day after the famed grizzly matriarch cast away her litter of four. Two of 399’s litter were collared and ended up traveling to Sublette County later that month. Wildlife officials killed one of the cubs in July, though it’s not clear whether it was the bear pictured in this file photograph.

Grizzly 1057, the subadult offspring of famous grizzly mother 399 that wildlife officials killed last month, had eschewed his natural habitat and boldly sought human food as taught, a top wildlife official said.

Grizzly 1057 left Jackson Hole earlier this year after being weaned by his mother. He wandered some 35 miles to the Upper Green River Valley by early July when residents began to see him frequenting rural neighborhoods.
