Grizzly 399, the most famous grizzly bear in the world, concerned her many fans across the planet when she wandered away from the relative safety of the Yellowstone and Grand Teton area and into Wilson, Wyoming.
It's been a problematic season for Grizzly 399. She has been struggling to put on sufficient weight for her to survive the hibernation season, and now, with her appearance in Wilson and surrounding environs, she has come farther south than she has ever been seen before.
Grizzly 399 is very used to humans. When she has a litter of cubs, she will frequently travel on roads because she is less likely to be attacked by a boar so near to cars. In the backcountry, grizzly boars will, if they find a female with cubs, sometimes try to kill the cubs in order to mate with the female themselves.
