last year's winner Beadnose was an easy choice but she didn't even make the bracket in 2019!

Divot is also an incredible bear

this rescue mission park rangers did for her in 2014 was insane. she was living with a wire snare around her neck for a little while.

:D

in anticipation of tomorrow's matchup, here's a super-intense video of 128 Grazer defending her 3 cub litter/attacking a larger male bear, 83 Wayne Brother, in 2016



all three cubs made it through the 2016 summer and ensuing winter. the yearlings showed up with her as a family at the start of 2017 summer
