Ursus arctos (brown bear). The difference between brown bear and grizzly bear is simply a matter of where they live.

Would not want to be caught between Sow and Cubs..... chipmunks are far less lethal..national geographic post...for sure.

Yes, they are dangerous and I have had my encounters with them and black bear; however, other wildlife species are equally as dangerous and often lethal. A few years back three people lost in encounters with moose in Anchorage alone. I have experienced being stocked by bear while the only time I can say that I experienced an attack was courtesy of a mule deer. If you choose to live in a wild place . . .
