Black Bear Eating Service Berries - Grand Teton National Park

This blackbear seems to like the service berries. I tried them and found them to be rather tasteless and bland.

Native americans used to mix service berries with fat and dried meat to make pemmican for winter food. Early trappers and pioneers called them "Sarvis" berries. My father used that term for them when I was young.

This bear has a ring around his neck from a radio collar that just fell off. He has a yellow numbered button in his ear.

I get so tired of all the animals in our national parks looking like branded livestock. It doesn't seem to matter which park I am in, most of the animals I see have these intrusive devices on them.
