This is intended to provide insights on bear behavior and why bears attack.
In this video I outline some of the differences between brown bears (grizzlies) and black bears. I discuss different types of bear encounters including,
and, Predatory Encounters.
And at the end I provide some advice on how to be prepared for and how to survive a bear attack.
