Bears in the North Cascades



Did you know that black bears are pretty common in the north cascades but grizzly bears are rare. The grizzly bear population is about 1,100. Did you know that you should always stay 50 yards away from any type of bear? If you have a fish you need to move the fish into a safe area. Also if a grizzly bear charges at you stay still because they might bluff it if they don’t, lay face first on the ground put your hands behind your neck and play died. Did you know that when you stomp your foot on the ground in front of a cat they always run away. Well don’t do that to a bear because he will attack you! Did you also know that an adult grizzly bear measures up to 6 through 8 feet tall? And weighs up to about 400 to 600 pounds. Bears eat a lot of food such as vegetables, roots, and salmon. They only live up to 20 to 25 years old. We probably won’t see any grizzly bears in the North Cascades because bears are more active at night then day. If a bear is on his hind legs he is only trying to sense you better, he is not going to attck you. Avoid any actions, don't interfere with any bear movement or any foraging activities.

Hi Sam and Edgar,
Did you know that black bears can weigh 90 to 800 kg. The grizzly bears can eat similar foods as humans for example vegetables, roots, berries, and salmon. The black bears can eat horsetails, grasses, aquatic plants such as lilies, elk, moose calves, deer fawns, ground squirrels, ants, wasps, bees, and carrion. And they eat different berries like chokecherry, huckleberries.
I like reading about bears,
