Visit Grizzly Bears at Grouse Mountain

Ever seen a Grizzly Bear before? You can at Grouse Mountain.

Grouse Mountain is home to two grizzly bears (Grinder and Coola). They were rescued from the wild and are now housed in a wilderness sanctuary.


Grinder was found in 2001 in Invermere, BC. He was weak, emaciated and weighed only 4.5kg, his mother was never found, so he would most likely have perished if it wasn’t for being found and rescued.

Also in 2001, Coola was found on a highway near Bella Coola, BC. His mother had been killed by a truck and of her 3 cubs Coola was the only one to survive. He too would have probably met the same fate as his siblings if it wasn’t for being rescued.
