Rare White Grizzly Spotted Near Lake Louise Ski Resort (Video)

By

Lake Louise Ski Resort posted a video of an extremely rare white grizzly bear walking near the ski resort this past weekend. Officials ask that tourists in the area do not seek out the bear, and that they give it space if they encounter it.

This particular bear has been spotted around Banff National Park over the last few years.

A group has unofficially named it ‘Nakoda’ which means ‘friend’ or ‘ally’ in the language of the local aboriginal tribes of the area.

Officials say that Nakoda is not albino. Rather, the bear possesses a recessive gene that causes its fur to grow white.
