17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Will you be my friend?

The reason I have titled this, "Will you be my friend", is because this Grizzly Bear's name is Coram. When Coram was 3 years old, he became a permanent resident of the Grizzly Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, due to the fact that he became habituated to human foods and garbage. Coram began boldly walking through town finding non-natural foods from residential areas, and therefore had to be removed from his natural habitat. I can't help but think, maybe Coram was just looking for a friend.
