“Maybe once in a lifetime an animal like this appears and her mere presence seems to galvanize everything. An icon of motherhood. An emblem of wildness. A sentient creature who has taught us new ways to think about others of her kind. 399 summons us together at a time when so much of the natural world is at loose ends and falling apart.”
—Thomas D. Mangelsen
Grizzly 399 is a beloved momma bear roaming Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest. In May of 2020 she emerged from hibernation with her four cubs, her largest brood to date and has just recently weened them, now traveling on her own again. She is one of the oldest grizzlies around, born in 1996, and has reared at least 24 descendants - making her a grandmother and possibly a great grandmother. She is loved, respected and watched over by many near and far.
