Mom and the Kids




Female brown/grizzlies form close bonds with their cubs, nurturing, teaching, and protecting them for two to three years. Each cub is an individual with a distinct personality. I watched this family for two hours at close range. At one point, one of the cubs chased a playful red fox while the other clung close to mom. Both yearling cubs took turns nursing and grazing. Putting on enough weight, quickly, is vital to survival. Only one in ten cubs lives to mating age (4-7).

“A Wolf Called Romeo is one of the best books I’ve read in a great many years. It gives heart-wrenching insight into an amazing animal, important insight into the shining side of our relationship with that animal, and important if bitter insight into the dark side….Riveting, a real page turner– one that years from now you will remember in all its detail. If you have only the time to read one book, read this one.”
