Grizzly Bears

Grizzly bears are powerful and strong animals. If you didn’t know that then I will tell you how powerful and strong they are.

Grizzly bears are 3-4 feet at the shoulder and 8 feet tall. Grizzlies weigh 400-1500 ponds. Grizzly bears also can run to a top speed of 35 mph.

Grizzly bears current status is 30-50 Grizzlies in the North Cascades. Grizzly bears are endangered in the United States.

The grizzly bear has few predators. One of the main predators is bounty hunter. Another predator is a miner. The last predator is a trapper. Bounty hunters, trappers, and miners have killed most of the grizzly bears by the 1800’s.

Grizzly Bears eat many things. The most common is salmon but it eats other things too. It eats vegetables, shoots, berries, roots, insects, leaves, carrion, and mammals of all sizes.

Grizzly bears live in different places. One of the places is caves. Another one is dens. Last one is if they can’t find caves or dens they dig holes in the ground.

Now you know why Grizzly bears are powerful animals.

Are there other types of bears in the North Cascades? If there are, are they as powerful (or dangerous) as the Grizzly? Hope you have a GREAT time at Mountain School!
