Canadian wildlife

Well, not so wild ......
As we hadn't seen a Grizzly bear in the wild, only Black bears, we decided to stop by Kamloops Wildlife park.
We were virtually alone in the 'zoo', as the tourist season seems to have stopped since the Thanksgiving weekend in early October.

A young male Grizzly with handy claws and the identifying hump on his back that shows he is a Grizzly not a Black bear!

 Mr Bison here seems to be having an eye popping moment!

The Lynx showing his powerful legs

A handsome Elk
Mustn't forget the chipmunk! Yes, I know they are everywhere in Canada but we don't have them in the wild in the U.K!

Vivid autumnal colours in the park.
