Danger to Grizzles
Grizzlies are hunted as game animals in spring and fall. They are illegally hunted by hunters and poachers interested in their hides, teeth, and claws for the Asian medical market. For many years there has been concern about the illegal killing of grizzlies, but there is a growing world medical market for bear parts.
Mother grizzly bears protecting their cubs are the most prone to attacking, being responsible for over 70% of fatal injuries to humans. Unlike the small black bears; grizzlies are too large to espace danger by climbing trees, so they respond by standing their ground and warding off the attackers.
