I have been asked so many times, or really told to me so many times that grizzlies cannot climb trees!! …… That is just not so, as a matter of fact, grizzlies can climb trees just as good or even better than black bears ……. the real reason people don't see many grizzlies in trees as they do black bears, is the fact that grizzlies are at the top of the food chain and don't need to climb trees as often, plus black bears are scared of their shadows. I have seen even full grown male grizzlies in fear of females with cubs in trees ……. In this image, this yearling cub was in this tree about 20 feet or so before I could get the shot but this is him coming down…… So the next time some one says to you that grizzlies can not climb trees ….. you'll know different.
