Grizzly Discovery

Spring reveals many things, including Mother Nature’s brutal side. If you pay attention to details, the forest floor often tells stories of seasons past, this was the case today when I discovered the remains of what appears to have been a good-sized brown/grizzly bear. Judging from how the skull had been absorbed into the earth and moss, this bear met its match a number of years ago, probably the result of fighting with another bear. Based upon the way in which the bones were scattered about, it’s also quite possible that it was cannibalized by its assailant, and so goes the circle of life.
