Despite common belief, grizzly bears aren’t a single species. Grizzly bears can actually be defined as any North American subspecies of brown bear, including the mainland brown bear, peninsular brown bear, and the Kodiak bear.
Although grizzly bears are notorious for being hostile and territorial, the reality is they tend to avoid contact with humans. When a grizzly bear attacks, it’s most likely because it was surprised or defending either a source of food or its cubs. Despite the grizzly bear’s immense size and natural strength, all subspecies are considered threatened in the United States and endangered in parts of Canada. The primary cause for their population decline is habitat loss and fragmentation.
