This.

Grizzlies/brown bears I can fully understand since the fuckers are massive. You're better off playing dead and hoping it pisses off.

Black bears are barely bigger than (large) humans though. You can scare them off by making enough noise and if worse comes to worse you can fight them. You'd definitely get hurt, but killed? C'mon.

Blackbears have prey drive though. So if you are moving away from one quickly it will potentially give chase. And they can run pretty damn fast. Kid probably fell for the play dead meme... Which only applies to grizzlies. Procedure for blackbear attack is to fight back. They don't like to work for their food.

Black bears are the manlets of bears, they are tiny and easily scared. You just make yourself look bigger and it's going to run away.

Brown bears aren't a thing.
You're thinking of Grizzly Bears, which can also have very dark coats sometimes.
Black bears can also have brown coats. But a Black bear with a brown coat is still a Black bear.

Polar bear attacks are a bigger issue just ask the seals.

The metaphor would hold if the black bears were in the arctic doing this. And the polarbears weren't doing it. And if the polarbears were a civilized species that can bring forth technologically advanced societies, while the black bears weren't. And then you'd need mosquitoes that manage to convince the polarbears that being chased down, killed and wiped out by black bears, thus dooming all bears as a whole to forever being an idiocracy of black bears living in huts and killing each other, is okay, because diversity.

Gizzly bears are the most savage, and the most dangerous.

Polar bears are potentially as savage as grizzly bears, but ususally mind to themselves.

Brown bears are similar to polar bears but much smaller and weaker.

Black bears are shy and timid and almost as dangerous as koala bears.


all in all wolves are way more likely to fuck you up in remote locations

>Black bears are the manlets of bears, they are tiny and easily scared. You just make yourself look bigger and it's going to run away.

Trouble with black bears is that they're much more curious than brown bears. Black bears are skittish but more prone to wander into human areas and might provoke and encounter by stumbling upon you.

Yes, you have a good shot at scaring it away, but this tendency of black bears to get into human areas and be curious about trash and camp sites can lead to deadly situations.

>Brown bears on the other hand are fucking huge and can be really dangerous.

This is true but brown bears avoid humans. So here it's the reverse; hiking humans who stumble upon them. You're worst off if you find a cub, because mom's around and she's going to be pissed off.

This is why you have the rule that you make noise in the woods, you sing to yourself and make sure the animals know you're just coming through.

Brown bears are literally the exact same species as grizzly.
Brown bear = Ursus Arctos
Grizzly bear = Ursus Arctos.
American Black bear = Ursus americanus
Hence for all intents and purposes Brown bears aren't actually a thing.

>>1115012
You are a complete retard. Here's a link, the jails are listed on google maps. It's big tourist industry to go view polar bears. I live in Northern BC bordering Alaska, retard, nowhere near a city.

>Brown bears are literally the exact same species as grizzly.

While there has been much confusion about the taxonomy of brown bears (Ursus arctos), taxonomists agree there are at least two subspecies in North America -- the grizzly bear (U. a. horribilis) and the Kodiak bear (U. a. middendorffi). There is confusion about whether to consider others, like U. a. gyas and U. a. macfarlani, as separate subspecies.

Even if you want to make this argument you're doing it backwards. Brown bears is the main species, not grizzly.

>>1115036
>They just have different features.

They can interbreed. Dogs can interbreed. You can call a poodle a german shepherd if you want, but I'll still call you an idiot.

And black bears also have subspecies. But I don't see anybody making that distinction.

I've had both a grizzly and plenty of black bears in my back yard. Generally you can just turn and casually walk away when you see a black bear, they're just foraging typically.

I've gotten between a black bear cub and it's mother on my way home from work once, I just backed up and posed no obvious danger to the cub so the mother wandered away after sniffing me up a bit.

The grizzly in my back yard was a different story though, easily twice as big as the car in my drive way and when I came up on it, it started following me down the street at a pretty brisk pace. I think I only got away because I didn't panic and just got out of line of sight as fast as possible; it was eating garbage in the suburbs so it was absolutely desperate for food.

The same as in the genetics from which their speciation emerges is the same. The prolific differences are due to regional selection pressures.

First there were "people" (plural) being eaten by polar bears every year in Churchill. Then you changed it to "several attacks" (not eaten) every year in ALL OF CANADA once you found out that only two people have ever been killed by polar bears in all of Churchill's history and that the last attack was in like 2013.

You said they "starve" them for "two months" -- they don't. They feed them snow and water (which polar bears can live off of for extraordinarily long periods of time) for 30 days (that's one month genius) to keep them from associating the town with food.

You are talking out of your ass. Please kill yourself.

Ok you are too stupid how is snow and water feeding a carnivorous animal that weighs nearly 1000,lbs. read, there are attacks every year that's what the jail is for. Can you not read there are videos and tv shows,there a show called polar bear town all about the jail and the tourist industry. Grizzlies and black bears attack every year in North America too. They are wild animals. But sure whatever you say.

The hibernation meme. Bears don't actually sleep all day when their metabolism goes into hibernation mode, but they are basically able to sustain themselves off their body fat alone. That's why bear sightings skyrocket in the fall. They literally go out and stuff their faces all day because they might go several months until their next meal after the snow falls.
