POST-SLUMBER MEANDERING – This glossy-coated bear was seen near Haines Junction last Sunday. It appears to have no hair covering its face. Sometimes when bears emerge from their dens after a long winter, they can have circles of hair loss around their eyes and down their muzzle, caused from external parasites that ‘host the animal during denning.
