Grinder & Coola Come Out of Hibernation

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011 – At approximately 2pm, Grinder and Coola, our two resident Grizzly Bears, emerged from their 10th hibernation at Grouse Mountain.

As per their usual routine, Grinder dug his way out first once the den door was open and he was followed shortly thereafter by Coola. Once outside, both bears proceeded to have a good romp in the snow, slide down the snow hills, clean their coats on the fresh snow and generally have a good time. After a good wrestle they both were breathing heavy and ready for a bit of R&R in the snow.

You can now come up and see the bears during our operating hours. Read more about our Endangered Wildlife Refuge here.
