Ranger Captures Moment Grizzly Bear Emerges From Hibernation

March 27, 2020

A video of Boo the grizzly bear emerging from his snowy hibernation in time for spring has racked up thousands of views on Twitter.

In the video, Boo pops his head out of a thick layer of snow and looks around confusedly as his caretaker, Nicole Gangnon, excitedly films him on her cellphone.

"Eight years it took me to catch this moment," she says gleefully.

Boo has lived at the Grizzly Bear Refuge for the past 18 years. He was born in the wild but was found after their mother was killed by a poacher.

Gangnon has been taking care of Boo ever since he was a little bit more than a year old.
