why did the Grizzly go on a diet:
Two years ago, a California grizzly bear was taken into the Sequoia Park Zoo. This bear had been wandering in his native haunts all alone, and there was a good deal of speculation about what would become of him when he became too old to be out lording it over his fellow bears, hunting salmon, or catching trout in the mountain streams.
In the fall of last year, this same Grizzly came lumbering down from the mountains looking for food, wandered through Bakersfield, and finally reached the outskirts of Fresno. Here he found a large vacant lot filled with all kinds of garbage.
He spent several days gorging himself on tin cans and garbage until he could scarcely hobble along on his legs that were bowed from being forced together for so many years. About the same time, a local photographer happened to be wandering in the neighborhood of this lot, and he took some pictures of the old fellow taking his ease on a pile of tin cans and garbage.
One picture was on the front page of every newspaper in California with such headlines as: “Picture Paints Tragic Story; Old Grizzly, Once King Of The Forest, Now A Slave To Garbage,” etc.

Grizzly bears are omnivores; they eat plants, insects, rodents, fish, deer, and elk. Grizzlies who live in coastal areas feed on salmon during the spawning season! Black bears will try to avoid humans, but grizzlies will attack if they feel threatened or cornered. This species is considered more aggressive than black bears, so use extra caution if encountering one of them.
Grizzlies mate every 3-4 years between June and August. Cubs are born in January after a gestation period of 7 months (220 days). Usually, females give birth to 1-3 cubs which stay with their mother for 2-3 years until they reach sexual maturity at the age of 5.
