This grizzly bear skull is the only physical evidence of the animal ever found on the Manitoba prairie. Unearthed in by a farmer plowing his eld near Austin, a small community about kilometres east of Winnipeg, the aged and weathered skull is clearly not from a recent inhabitant, as the species is now only found in the northern reaches of the province. The skull is part of the museum’s mammal and zoology collection. With files from Manitoba Museum. Learn more about this artifact and others by visiting manitobamuseum.ca.
