Last Grizzly Bear Killed In Colorado!

It happened thirty years ago.

Is there some reason why we should be upset about this? We don’t have any more T-Rex or Velociraptor either.

    Now you can not go to lunch with a Grizzly in your local park.

    And the buffalo don’t run through my yard like they would have 100 years ago either. I consider this a good thing. Although, buffalo burgers can be very tasty if cooked properly! Griz, I’m not so sure. Brown bear perhaps.

      Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam
      And I’ll show you a house full of buffalo chips
      Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
      Except from the guy who’s got to clean up the mess
      Home, home on the range
      Where the deer and the antelope play
      Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
      Except from the gal who’s china is broke

    A local progressive nitwit columnist here laments how we don’t have any Grizzlies roaming the nearby forests. I guess he wants to invite one over for a wine tasting or something.

    Grizzlies are great for scattering trash, smashing into cars, and disposing of unwanted pets and children.

    They seem to be very happy in Alaska, and I’m happy for them.

    Our Colorado Black Bears can be intimidating enough. Anybody living in Steamboat Springs (as I do) who hasn’t come face to face with a Black Bear on multiple occasions, must be a shut-in.

    Grizzlies (aka Brown Bears) are WAY more intimidating and far more aggressive. I’m quite happy to let the residents of other states deal with those bad boys.

      Blacks are easily treed, even a cat can do it.
      Protect your property with a cat.

      • SBVOR says:

        Sounds to me like you’ve never confronted a Black Bear. They are nowhere near that predictable, especially trash bears — been there, done that, didn’t win the fight, retreated to fight another day (and another way).

    No news like old news, except, of course, real old news

    Might be here again soon.

    There are now more than a couple grizz in the Wyoming Range, which tapers off down towards Kemmerer Wyo. Not too far from the Colorado, Utah, Wyoming border. When I go hiking I keep the kids real close because I see lots of cat tracks everywhere. A three year old makes a squeak that sounds like an electronic predator lure. Griz I can do without.

    Just came back from up by Steamboat, black bears are thick.
