[pct-l] Grizzlies in North Cascades?

I was thumbing through an old issue of Backpacker magazine the other day,
and came upon an article on North Cascades NP which mentioned there being
a grizzly bear presence therein.  According to the author, the actual bear
population in unknown, but believed small.  This is the first I've heard of
grizzlies existing anywhere along the route traversed by the PCT.  No
mention in the Handbook, nor the guidebooks, from what I've seen.  Can
anyone confirm?  Is there any reason to take precautions out of the ordinary
when traversing this final section on a thru-hike?
