Grizzly Bear Refuge Report
Grizzly Bear Refuge – Updated August 6th, 2013
Only four weeks of operational hours left for the Grizzly Bear Refuge! Why does summer have to go by so quickly? Boo is looking great this summer and as berry season is upon us, Boo is slowly increasing his calorie intake. Twisted Stalk has really come to life in Boo’s habitat and he is often observed foraging through his Seep trees, meticulously plucking individual berries from the leaves of this plant. An impressive sight, seeing such a large animal be so delicate with his food.
Boo received lots of media coverage this summer, boasting 10 years here at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Boo and his staff were interviewed by the Calgary Herald which resulted in articles also being printed in the Leading Post, Vancouver Sun, and Montreal Gazette. The Edmonton Journal also came up for a tour of the resort, including a visit with Boo. Additionally, CBC Radio conducted three live interviews with the refuge staff.
We are happy with the media coverage Boo has been receiving. In our eyes he is always a star J. So come on out to Golden, visit our famous bear, and purchase an 18-month calendar of Boo. A wonderful memorabilia of your visit to the Grizzly Bear Refuge this summer.
