Banff Grizzly Remembered by Calgary Zoo

The Calgary Zoo has published a grizzly bear edition of their Member magazine to educate young people across Calgary and the rest of the province about the perils that our Alberta grizzlies face. The cover photo is one most of you will recognize, as it's the photo of Dawn, the mother mother grizzly that was killed out by Lake Louise earlier this year, playing with one of her yearling cubs just a day before her death.

The Calgary Zoo's member magazine remembers Dawn, the female grizzly bear killed by Lake Louise in May

Check out the informative story on Dawn, as well as a great article on Skoki, another Lake Louise bear that was removed from the Banff population years ago and who now serves his time at the Calgary Zoo thrilling and educating visitors with his majestic presence and sad tale.

Hope you enjoy the images and stories.
