One of the Kodiac “girls” from Taronga Zoo, Sydney
Sadly, one died recently of old age..

Although the term “Kodiak bear” is widely used to include all coastal Alaska brown bears, the subspecies only occurs on the islands of the Kodiak Archipelago, Alaska (Kodiak, Afognak, Shuyak, Raspberry, Uganik, Sitkalidak, and adjacent islands). The Kodiak bear population was estimated to include 3,526 bears in 2005, yielding an estimated archipelago-wide density of 0.7 bears/square mile (271.2 bears/1000 km2). During the past decade the population has been slowly increasing

Since statehood, the reported number of Kodiak bears killed by hunters has ranged from 77 (1968–69) to 206 (1965–66). From 2000 – 2006, an average of 173 Kodiak bears was killed by hunters each year (118 during the fall season and 55 in the spring season).
