Canadian Geographic - - WILDLIFE -

Me­gan Adams, the lead au­thor of a new study that ex­am­ined and mapped the long-term salmon-eat­ing habits of black and griz­zly bears in Bri­tish Columbia, de­scribes to the CBC the process of col­lect­ing tufts of bear hair from barbed-wire cor­rals. The study iden­ti­fied pre­cisely where more than 1,400 bears fed on salmon and found that, over­all, grizzlies ate more salmon than black bears.
