JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - A grizzly bear famous for raising her cubs near roadside areas in Grand Teton National Park has made her first appearance of the spring.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reported Thursday (https://tinyurl.com/m548w4n ) the 18-year-old female known as grizzly bear 399 was spotted Monday with two cubs.

She had three cubs when she seen in November 2013. Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs ways one of the cubs might have wandered off on its own or might not have survived the winter.

Park biologists have never attached a tag to her, but wildlife photographer Roger Hayden says she’s recognizable by some distinctive scars.

Grizzly 399 has been a favorite of photographers and wildlife watchers since 2006 when she began frequenting Oxbow Bend, Willow Flats and the area around Jackson Lake Lodge.
