Maureen and Victoria share the special relationship that Murray the elder had with Jasper: “She thinks I’m her mother. If another bear starts giving her a hard time, she hides behind me. She’d always think I would protect her. I know she’d do the same for me.”

Once the bears make their nests in their dens and curl up for their winter’s nap, it’s a long stretch without them. “When I miss Victoria, I just go down to her den and wake her up,” Maureen says. “And she’ll sit up like a giant teddy bear. I snuggle in close to her. When I start to leave, she grabs my sleeve to get me to stay.” But Maureen does leave. She goes home to sleep–and dreams of spring, when she’ll be with Pemi and Echo again. And Victoria.

Shows open Memorial Day weekend. 603-745-8913; clarkstradingpost.com
