This bear was spotted outside of Haines Junction.
I thought it was a grizzly bear but in fact it’s a black bear.
It was eating dandelions by the roadside only a few minutes after the end of the Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay which happened today.
The 250km relay takes place near Kluane National Park which is a place of great beauty and wildlife.
SAFETY NOTE: I took these photos using a 300mm zoom, from inside a car with the windows rolled up. I did not bother the bear and drove quickly away when I had snapped a few pictures.
Note the identifying mark of an injury over its left eye.
