Having the knowledge and courage to walk up to a mother grizzly and a cub is not a simple task.
Yes, this might seem crazy and stupid. But, these rangers are trained professionals equipped with the knowledge and tools to do this type of thing. It is not recommended at all to walk up to a grizz, ever.
Plus, they kinda of “know” the bear (as well as you can really “know” a wild animal).
As you can see in the video, grizzlies are absolutely massive. Full grown males can weigh over 1,500 pounds.
Sometimes though… bears can also be a massive nuisance though. They love to hang around the wooded areas where humans are present because it usually means easy food, even if it comes from a garbage can. These animals’ whole life is based around getting food as easily as they can.
Two grizzly bears, a mama bear and her cub, are seen hanging around some cabins in Katmai National Park. They’re just grazing along minding their business being right in the way of a cabin in an area with endless amounts of forest.
The park ranger walks up to the grizzlies and shouts at them with her hand ready to grab bear spray. The cub turns towards her, but as she stands her ground both decide to run away.
You can’t help but notice the size of these animals. They’re just huge. This is one brave women…
Scaring grizzly bears away for a living definitely isn’t for the faint of heart.
