(Moose, Wyo.) - Last night, a grizzly bear cub was struck by a vehicle and killed in Grand Teton National Park.
Multiple Facebook pages are reporting that the cub killed was Grizzly 399's
new white-faced cub, which many called "Snowy," although Grand Teton
National Park has not confirmed that yet.
Since the incident, locals have constructed a little memorial on the side
of the road where the bear was killed.
"It's beyond belief and sadness. We must remember all Bears, including 399
are organic and of this Earth, they understand what is unknown to the human
brain. Today our hearts weep," said Cindy Campbell, founder of local
activist group Bear 760.

2016, marks another tragic day in the life of famous grizzly bear 399... It
is a sad day indeed for 399, her beautiful cub, and all of her admirers."
