Are grizzly bears vegetarian?
Although all species of bears, including black and grizzly bears, are technically of the order Carnivora, they are essentially omnivores that eat plants, insects, fish, and animals.
How do grizzly bears get their food?
Grizzly bears feed on ungulates primarily as winter-killed and wolf-killed carrion but also through predation on elk calves (Gunther and Renkin 1990, Mattson 1997). Some large male grizzly bears also prey on adult bison during early spring.
Is grizzly meat edible?
“It’s all from hunter-killed brown bears, and I’ve eaten it and it tastes fine,” Warren said. “Those are the same bears they have in Alaska. Some people might find the meat greasy, but I think that can depend on the cut and how much fat you trim off before cooking.”
