Grizzly Bear Interrupts Photo Shoot
Grizzly bear interrupts photo shoot – In a dangerous place in the deep woods of Canada… the bears are huge and very curious… see what happens when a huge brown bear decides to take a closer look at a film shoot for a washing machine…
The video makes for a grin or two and is fun to watch.
In reality, n Canada, there are approximately 25,000 grizzly bears occupying British Columbia, Alberta, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and the northern part of Manitoba. An article published in 1954 suggested they may be present in the tundra areas of the Ungava Peninsula and the northern tip of Labrador-Quebec.
- Grizzly Bears are able to adapt to a wide variety of habitats. A few examples of habitable ecosystems include temperate coastal rain forests, alpine tundra, and prairie grasslands.
- Grizzly Bears are well-adapted for digging, hunting, grazing and rooting, and these bears are omnivorous.
- Grizzly Bears live in dens during the winter and can hibernate up to 7 months.
- Female Grizzlies begin mating at the age of 6 years and their litters are comprised of 1-3 cubs. The bear cubs are born in the winter dens in January or February.
What’s Being Done
One of the major ways in which Grizzly Bears are currently protected is through hunting regulations. While Manitoba, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland, and Labrador do not give Grizzly Bears any special legal status, the territories, British-Columbia and Alberta all have some hunting restrictions in place.
In the Yukon, a quota system is in place which strongly incentivizes hunting male bears instead of females, as well as staying within the given quota for female bears. To the east, in the Northwest Territories, cubs bears accompanying cubs (usually their mothers) and bears in dens are protected. Unfortunately, Nunavut has little restrictions in place for the hunting of Grizzlies.
Conservation of Grizzly Bears is also available through protected areas such as parks or reserves. It is currently estimated that around 7.1% of the total range of Grizzly Bears is protected to some degree, through hunting regulations and/or restrictions on human activities.
