    I've been close to a couple bears in life

    Missing a picture of a cinnamon bear and her cubs while backpacking in Banff unfortunately

    Was hoping to see a lynx and a caribou but wasn't lucky

    I’m admittedly behind on my bear identification skills, but doesn’t that hump indicate a grizzly?

    Really wanted the gorilla to snap that fuckers neck. They are some annoying/dirty birds.

    Begs the question, would you rather come up on a grizzly bear or a gorilla?

    Grizzly, I'd hope to just out maneuver it, by dodging through trees or rock outcrops, a gorilla is way more agile.

    If you don't make eye contact and go submissive a gorilla is probably going to let you live. If the bear is hungry you are fucked

    Let's assume you were walking alone on a dirt road and a gorilla or bear just appeared 50 feet away from you and they clearly see your presence. On the sides of the roads are trees. You carry no weapons. Choose one, now.

    Location is the animals favorite location wherever that is

    Time of year is when they are most active

    No cubs

    You're going to die either way just answer the question

    I’m just being difficult. I’d pick a grizzly (should’ve chosen Kodiak brown bear or polar bear to up the ante cause grizzlies are pussies compared to them) because I’m more familiar with them. I’d (assuming standing my ground/intimidating them isn’t working) go for the tree line while dialing 911 and hope I can stay on the other side of a tree long enough for backup to arrive. Gorillas are much more agile than grizzlies.

    Watching the wolves hunt as a pack is incredibly satisfying and terrifying at the same time.

    Didn't expect to see a wolverine run away like that. They are known for standing their ground against wolves (albeit sometimes unsuccessfully) to protect their kill.

    That's a good looking bear.

    If anyone gets the chance, head up to Jasper

    You won't regret it

    We camped right off the Icefields Parkway, about 1/3 of the way south of Jasper, 2/3 of the way north of Banff.

    Indescribable.

    Regarding bears: when I was younger we went on a Jackson Hole/Yellowstone trip (we had driven up from Salt Lake since my parents were basically the Griswolds).

    On the way back one of the women in the family was upset we had not seen any bears, so we see a big sign for "bear park" in Idaho and decide to roll through.

    It ended up being a fucking drive through area like Jurassic Park without any separation between a rental car and roaming bears, it was the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. And apparently, still operating.
