The Mexican Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos nelsoni) was last seen in Mexico in 1964. It was slightly smaller than the grizzlies in Canada and the USA, and was lighter in colour, varying from yellow to silver in colour, with darker fur underneath. Due to its silver colour it was also known as "El Oso Plateado" - the silver bear. The bear was considered a nuisance by cattle farmers, as it hunted the cattle and so the farmers trapped, shot and poisoned the grizzlies until the last one was poisoned in 1964. There have been rumours of some still in existence but there have been no confirmed sightings.

This is a super well set out fabric design. The motifs are great and the palette is well-chosen to suit the topic. Awesome work!
Wow!!! This design really stood out! Fabulous collection of images capturing something of the complexity of this "o so sad" storr. Really enjoyed reading your note - especially the rumours of them still being in existence (like Thylacines - we wish!). You put together a complete creative package here, very well done!
Thanks Rhonda! You write the most eloquent comments - I always love reading them.
You have captured a fabulous Mexican ambiance in your design that highlights the tragic fate of the Mexican Grizzly.
Thanks you for checking out the bears and for the comment Linda!
Thanks Julie! I love them too - I had no idea about the Mexican Grizzly bear before this.
I love bears, it is amazing that there used to be Grizzlies in Mexico and so sad that they are extinct now. Great idea to do a cheater quilt.
