There are lots of animals in the Yukon. There are grizzly bears and black bears, they are mammals and usually have one to four cubs.There are also birds like eagles, there are golden eagles and bald eagles. Most eagles will kill by hitting their pray with their claws so hard that it brakes their spine and kills them.There are other birds like loons, they are birds that are black and have white dots on their backs.Eagles mostly eat : grouse, squirrels, rabbits, hares and other small animals. In the Yukon there is The Porcupine caribou herd that comes through every year. They are mammals and have their babies in the U. S. A. The Porcupine caribou herd travels over 1000 km. every year to have their babies. Caribou are large mammals that have brown fur but they have a white on there stomatch and tail and have fuzz on there antlers. Somme people want to drill for oil where the caribou are having there babies , and the govrment says that the oil is worth 100,000,000 $!
