Bear Eating Its Vegies

Think bears just want to eat meat? This bear is grazing on grass and other vegetation. According to BearSmart, up to 90% of a bear’s diet can be non-meat. The site says,

When bears emerge from their dens in the spring, food is in short supply. Although bears are hungry, most trees and shrubs won’t leaf for another month and only the grass at lower elevations has begun to green up. At this time of year, they are often found foraging on sunny, south-facing slopes where they can find overwintered berries or scavenge for winter-killed deer and moose.

Bear you have it….
