Does a Bear Walk in the Woods?

Yes! I have much better pictures than this one, which I will post. I spent a day on Gribbell Island hoping to see the Spirit Bear. The bad news is he or she never showed, but the good news is I photographed quite a few black bears that could produce spirit bear offspring.

The First Nations have always banned the killing of the spirit bear, and now they ban the killing of the black bear in these special places where the spirit bear lives. They are smart enough to understand that if you kill the black bear with the recessed gene, you reduce the chances of the birth of the white bear.
