THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA
This photo was taken the last time I saw Scarface, or Grizzly 211, as he wandered along the shore of Yellowstone Lake in the fall of 2015. At that time, I was concerned about how frail the 25- year-old bear appeared and worried about how much longer he would be with us. Sadly, Scarface was shot and killed near Gardiner, Montana, one month later, making this last sighting of the magnificent old warrior all the more special to me.
