Grizzly Road (excerpt) Sabrina Alonso, 9 min
Gracing the California state flag is the grizzly bear. It is estimated that 10,000 grizzly bears once roamed the golden state. The call of Manifest Destiny for westward expansion sealed the great bear's fate. "Grizzly Road" is a feature documentary exploring not only the lonely path of the California Grizzly’s extinction, but the fate of the California landscape.
