Should Grizzly Bears be Reintroduced in California?


We have been studying the issue of whether grizzly bears should or should not be reintroduced in California. The bears are native to California, but have not been in our state for 90+ years. The question to answer is:


Should the state of California reintroduce grizzly bears into the wild?

  1. Although at one time grizzly bears were native to California. I don't think after 90 years the state of California should reintroduce grizzly bears into the wild. Grizzly bears should not be reintroduced because they are dangerous to people. I think grizzly bears should remain in the areas that they live now. If we bring grizzly bears into California they could cause injuries to people who are camping in the forest, hiking, or exploring. Another thing that might happen if we bring grizzly bears back into California is that people might kill them if they are roaming free like before. In conclusion, grizzly bears should not come back to California and should remain where they are.

  2. I think it is a great idea to bring grizzles back to California. There is a lot of space in Southern California for them. Even if they don’t stay in their area there not going to harm anyone if we keep our space. They were here first and they are on our state flag. Just because they say that grizzles are the toughest animals doesn’t mean it true. For campers in Yosemite and other National parks, they have nothing to worry about. Grizzles shouldn’t attack if nothing is moving. Before people came there were an estimate of 50,000 to 100,000 grizzles in the west, today there is an estimate of 1,500 to 1,800. We lost about 900,000 grizzle bears. Those numbers dropped from us and we should bring them back up. The last grizzle bear was killed in 1922 and after about 90 years they should come back. And that is why I think grizzle bears should come back.

    2. Yeah, but if we back out for grizzlies, they will keep on producing young until humans have no more space to give to grizzly bear populations.
      Plus, they would affect the food chain. Black bears and other animals would have to compete for food, water, and shelter against an animal much, much bigger than them.

  3. Many different types of people and animals live in California, so why shouldn't grizzy bears? I think grizzy bears should be brought back into California because they help in many ways. Grizzy bears help by getting rid of annoying animals in the forest. They also find their own place to live and hunt for their own feed . Besides, it might be fun to have a grizzly bear for a pet.

  4. I think that the grizzlies should not be brought back to California. The reason I think that is because it would ruin the experience for people camping, hikers and backpackers. It would mess up the food system too because the grizzlies would eat other big animals and the animals that ate those animals would die because they would have no food. It would ruin the experience for people camping, hikers and backpackers because they would have to carry a heavily armed gun or they would be lunch for the grizzlies.

  7. I think grizzly bears should not be re-introduced to California. I am against their re-introduction because it would just add another animal to the list of animals fighting for resources. Re-introducing the bear sounds nice, but it may be too ambitious for two very human related reasons: human boundaries on their habitat, and limited resources due to climate change. Human boundaries mean nothing to grizzlies. According to Erin Hauge of the Sacramento Bee, one male grizzly`s home range can be 200 to 500 square miles, that includes foothills and grasslands. There may be deadly grizzly encounters between humans and bears. Climate change has had an impact on California’s resources. It might throw off the food chain, because black bears would have to fight for food with a bear that is two times their size! Why don’t we focus on endangered animals that are already in our state? Yes, the grizzly is on our state flag, because it’s strong and fearsome. I think it is special that we are the only state that has the grizzly on our state flag. Even though there are none in California anymore, it is about the symbolism that the bear represents. I think it should stay that way.

  8. Honestly, I don't think we should bring brown bears back to California. They don't even know the boundaries between their habitat and ours so it's hard for them to stay in the boundaries. We lived without them for 90 years now. It's not like we can't live without them, so why would we bring them back? We would just kill them like we did back then, and they would become extinct if we brought them back. I don't think we want them to become extinct now, do we? That is why I think we should NOT bring them back.

  9. Bringing grizzly bears back is just heading towards trouble. If grizzly bears were to be released into tourist-filled parks like Yosemite, backpackers and hikers would have to would have to walk around with guns. If we brought the brown bear back it would affect everything. It would affect the food chain and humans. The fact that grizzly bears could, once released, come down into the San Joaquin Valley and hang out in your backyard, completely terrifies me. Already endangered species would be affected to. Brown bears would eat all the lesser animals, and animals would have to compete for there food more than ever. We took grizzly bears out of California because they were dangerous to humans. Why should we bring these monstrous killers back? Let the grizzly bear live in honor on our state flag.

  11. I think it isn’t a good idea to bring Grizzly bears back to California.
    First of all, grizzly bears are dangerous to humans. They can slice us in half. There are lots of hikers in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and cabins that people live in. I think it would also be dangerous to put grizzlies in national parks because of all the tourists. Second of all, bringing Grizzly bears back would cause a big impact on other bears. They would compete for food and water. Third of all, ranchers and farmers don’t want to bring back Grizzlies because they will eat their livestock. That would have an impact on the farmers because they rely on their livestock to make money. I believe that it wasn’t ethical to kill all of the grizzly bears because they were living in California before us. Over time I think Grizzlies would wander to human society. I don’t think you want Grizzly bears in your backyard? If we do bring them back, I think there will be lots of grizzly bear attacks. Why bring them back if we’re just going to kill them in self defense?
    Again, I think it isn’t a good idea to bring Grizzly bears back to California.

  12. Bringing back Grizzly Bears to California is the worst idea yet. I think this because through my research I have found better evidence to not bring Grizzly Bears back to California. I think this because Grizzly Bears are mostly hostile creatures that will do anything to get something, including killing people. Also, they won’t just stay in one place, they will expand their territory. For example, one male grizzly’s territory can be up to 500 miles! Finally, it will take the fun out of nature hikes because it would go from a nice, safe adventure to a nervous hike with heavy firearms to defend ourselves from the grizzlies. That concludes my theory of bringing back Grizzly Bears to California.

    2. I think bringing back Grizzly Bears is a disaster waiting to happen the reason is that we cant have Grizzly Bears strolling around California a perfect day can change just by a swipe of a Grizzly Bears and climate change is no good . Grizzly bears have to adapt if we move them and it will mess up the food chain, and bears wont stay in one place . and that is why i say no to bringing them back.

  13. We should not bring back Grizzly bears back to California. A lot has changed since we had grizzly bears in our state. Yosemite is not big enough for them. The population is large in our state. Why don’t we just put them in a less populated state like Alaska? They wouldn't survive here anymore.
    We successfully brought gray wolves back because we didn't mess with their habitat, but grizzlies are different, they weigh as much as a small car!

  14. The recent plot to bring back the grizzlies to California is highly expensive, and it’s just to bring back about 10-30 bears! Grizzlies will not stay in the Sierra and will come down in to the Central Valley as they forage for food. As a experienced backpacker/camper I know what a threat bears are to food and backpacking in general. Having to carry around an assault rifle, or any type of gun really would be a pain to haul around.
    The food chain would experience a disaster somewhat like what happened with the Grey Wolf reintroduction to Yellowstone had. All in all, the grizzly has been absent for 92 years. Let’s be realistic and keep the only grizzlies in California on our flag

  16. In my opinion, bringing the grizzly bears back into California is a bad idea. We have lots of people living in California, so if we bring the grizzly bears back it would cause trouble and commotion. Alaska doesn’t have very many people living there. It has tons of space for bears to live there. California doesn’t have very much space for the bears. Grizzly bears could kill lots of humans and animals. Bringing the bears back could affect the food chain. If we do bring the grizzly bears back, more and more fights will be happening for food, water and shelter among other animals. Just because the grizzly bears are on our state flag doesn’t mean we should reintroduce them. Tons of grizzly bears were killed because of how dangerous they are. The grizzly bears will not know where their boundaries are and could end up in your backyard. In conclusion, I vote not to bring the grizzly bears back to our state.

  17. Bring Back The Grizzlies
    I think we should bring back the grizzlies for many reasons. First, I think we should bring them back because they were originally here. We basically killed and hunted them out of their original habitat. Secondly, people call these bears 1 ton predators and super predators sometimes there are ferocious but if if we don't restore the natural predator population and natural food chain other animal may be threatened. Lastly, if you keep your space from these grizzlies we will not hurt them and they won’t hurt us. Wouldn’t you you want to see grizzlies back in California? If we can bring back a wolf in California we can bring back these bears.

    6. Raymond, that may not be true because if some types of animals are endangered they will make shore that no one kills them. And grizzle bears are I fact endangered.

  18. Grizzly bears should not be brought into California mountains. Grizzly bears weigh one ton, which is 2000 pounds. They often grow to the size of a small car. Would you want that landing on you?

    Hikers might need to bring guns with them to protect themselves from grizzly bears in national parks. They could hear something in trees, bushes or the grass, and think it’s a grizzly bear. If they shoot their gun and if a person is in the area, the person could get shot.

    Grizzly bears do not know the boundaries of the mountain ranges in California. They could wonder into the foothills, break into houses, and kill people. When people camp, grizzly bears might come and steal all of the peoples food. They have so much power in their claws that they can use to cut off someone’s head. Grizzly bears are very dangerous animals.

  21. Grizzly bears shouldn’t be in California. When hikers go hiking they always bring a Firearm because what if a Grizzly bears pops out of nowhere, so the hikers shoot it. Some people like to hunt and when they hear about Grizzly bears are in the area the hunters go find a grizzly bear and kill it. When they hunt too much they will over hunt again and the Grizzly bears could actually be extinct and we have a Grizzly bear for our flag in California. It would be a waste of money because who would be paying for the Grizzly Bears to come back. If we did bring it back what is the point of bringing them back? If we already overhunted them, why bring them back?

  22. I think bringing back the grizzly bears back is just unreasonable. We would just kill them again, and its a waste of money. Bringing them back would mess up the food chain. The grizzly bears would take out others species of bears and animals without mercy. That would take out other animals,and it would go on and on. If the grizzly bears move down to the Central Valley the human population would decrease drastically. Humans would have no control over the bear population. There is no good reason to bring these 1 ton monsters back.

  24. Introducing grizzly bears into CA is a very bad idea. I think it is a bad idea because these 1 ton monsters won’t know the boundaries we set for them. If we decide to only put them in Yosemite Park they will put tourists and hikers in danger. They also will follow food, putting humans in danger. One male grizzly’s territory can range 200 to 500 square miles. We only have about 110,000 square miles set for them to live on. That means they will come closer to humans in danger.

  25. I think that bringing back Grizzly bears back to California is not the right Choice my reason is grizzly bears are huge and we cant have that in places like Yosemite we don't want to have to carry rifles around we want to have the ability to have a real trip not a look around every 10 seconds trip . We should have the ability to lay back and enjoy places like Yosemite . And don't think I am this girl who doesn't care about these grizzly bears. I want this to have impact and this the reason i am doing this,is for the bears i don't want to see these bears die the reason they might die is California has changed sense than and what is the point of bringing them back just so we can shoot them if we feel in danger . Erin Hauge made a point to say "While a proposal to reintroduce Grizzly bears into the Sierra Nevada sounds thrilling ,it may be too ambitious for at least three reasons:Human encroachment , Climate change , and the fact that these bears would be a non-contiguous population in limited range .

  28. Bringing grizzly bears back to the Sierra is a big mistake.Grizzlies are territorial, if you go to their place they will hunt you down.They have sharp claws,large body size and carnivore teeth to harm or kill a person or pets.
    People will bring their rifles when they hike to protect themselves.They will end up killing the bears or people would get killed.The next time you camp or hike in the Yosemite or Sequoia, do not be surprised if you saw a sign "LOADED GUNS REQUIRED,GRIZZLY TERRITORY AHEAD.

  29. We should not bring Grizzly Bears back. A male grizzly can extend 200 to 500 square miles.Why don't we put them to Alaska? There're not many people there. Yosemite is a too small for them. Grizzlies will spread all over California. They will also steal our food. A grizzly bear weighs 2000 pounds! They can chop you right in half. Besides, it will mess up the food chain. I vote that grizzlies should not be entered in California.

  30. Bring back grizzlies!
    We should bring back grizzlies because they were naturally here first. Grizzlies don't want to eat humans. It's rare for grizzlies to attack humans. Most of the attacks are from mother Grizzlies protecting their cubs. Grizzlies are at the top of the food chain. They've been gone for 90 years so why not bring them back to California?

  31. I think we should not put the grizzly bears back in California.Grizzly bears eat salmon and there is an endangered species of salmon. The species of salmon might get extinct. Black bears live in California and they might run out of food. Sometimes they eat people. People might kill them again .The grizzly bears might run out of food and might go into cities. Maybe other animal might get extinct .One male bear home can extend 200 to 500 square miles and this would put people in danger.

  32. We should not bring grizzly bears back to California. If you put them in a safe place even where there is no people around, but still, their amount will increase a lot and then it will break the food chain. Additionally, they don't know the boundaries, they can wonder around in cities just to find food. We should have ability to watch the sunset rather than carrying a gun all day every second in Yosemite. Do you ever want a 1 ton monster in your backyard? It might come back to hunting grizzly bears down, then what is the point of bringing grizzly bears back to California?

  33. I think grizzly bears should be put back into California. I think grizzlies should be brought back into the wild California because they were here before humans came to California. Bringing grizzlies back shouldn’t mess up our daily lives.

    If doing so takes billions of dollars, I could then be wrong, but I am most likely to be correct. It shouldn’t take away any of our resources that we use every day. I say to everyone who thinks differently should rethink their opinion about bringing the state animal back to the state it belongs to. We also should bring grizzlies back because of tourists’ sake, so they don’t think terribly about this states population of animals.

    I agree with Noah Greenwald, “We shouldn’t be closing the book on grizzly recovery, we should be beginning a new chapter.” If you agree with him read the next paragraph.

    If you want to recover the grizzlies you need to visit breeding grounds for fish and bring them what natural fish eat; seaweed. Doing so more fish should breed. We also need to bring a helicopter to fly over the natural forests of California dropping seed for the grass and water giving it rich soil and a benefit for the trees.
    This and more would be amazing to bring the grizzly bears back to California.

  34. I think Grizzly bears should not be re-introduced into California.
    Grizzly bears should not be re-introduced because we are having a drought and all the animals are striving to get the main resources they need: food, water and shelter. If the Grizzly bear also gets involved with this, the smaller and the weaker animals would not be able to win over a fight against a Grizzly for resources, since Grizzlies are stronger and bigger.
    Once the Grizzly bears have no food they will start to go to the lower grounds and start looking for some food. Now this is where you might see a Grizzly in your vegetable garden, then they are picking at some fruits in your fruit tree. After their done they turn around to find you staring at them and started to wonder if you were edible but, you killed it right away.
    When Grizzly bears enter the Central Valley humans will start to kill the Grizzlies then they will be extinct again in California.
    I vote that Grizzly bears should not be brought into California .

  35. For other animal’s sake, I do NOT think we should bring the grizzly bears back to California. The way it could affect other animals is that it could eat the same food as a different animal and it would eat all of that animal’s food and the animal and the food they ate would become extinct (unless the food was a plant). That could affect a different animal that eats the animal that became extinct.
    Also, they can be a very big danger and people could die. If you were out camping in a cabin, one will smell your food and hunt it down. And if you try and stop it, you will get injured and might die. If you go hiking, the last thing you want to see is a bear with its mouth wide open in front of your face.
    I love the animal, but if we bring them back, there is a possibility that people might start shooting them again. People think that the bears will stay in one spot, but they don’t know the boundaries.

  36. Reintroducing grizzly bears into California would not have a very happy ending. If the bears came back it could affect the whole ecosystem. They would take away the habitats and food from the already existing animals. Grizzlies are very powerful predators, weighing up to 1 ton. According to an article written by Erin Hauge, one male grizzly bear’s range is about 500 square miles. The possible amount of grizzly habitat in California is 110,000 square miles. Grizzlies do not know these boundaries. Over time they would start moving into the central valley looking for food. We would have to worry about getting attacked. What if a grizzly appeared out of nowhere? Wouldn’t we just end up trying to get rid them again?

  37. Grizzlies should have the right to move back into California. We could make a sanctuary for them of 2000 square miles in the Sierra Nevada. Humans could find a way to shock the bears and make a high pitched noise in there ear if they went out of the boundaries. The bears would then communicate to their cubs to not go over the boundary line. The way to do that is to put microchips in the first bears so we could track the bears and try to keep them from harming humans. We could bring in about 10 to 15 bears. And if we put grizzlies into California it would have an effect on how many there are in the country. There are 1500 to 1800 grizzlies in the country right now, there can be 60000 in the country. Again, we should bring back grizzlies, after all they are on our state flag.

    4. Nice point, that you could add some tracking devices to the bears and if they go out of our boundaries we could tranquilize them then bring them back into the boundaries.

  41. Currently, we are planning to bring grizzly bears back, which would cost thousands and maybe millions of dollars! (Outrageous, right?) And why spend all that money to see our mascot die again? Seriously? Come on, people. At least tell me, you are kidding.
    They are not.
    Grizzly bears should not be brought back to California. Grizzlies are also a hazard to hikers, hunters, backpackers, campers, and us. They would be hunted, which would put them into extinction. There may not be enough food for them, and they may come into public areas. They may also fight each other for food, shelter, and water, which would be dangerous. Also, one grizzly would kill the competitor, which would put them into a bigger extinction.
    I believe these bears should be protected. My way of protecting them is by NOT bringing them back to California.

  42. Bringing the grizzly bears back may sound like a nice idea at first. The cubs are cute but that's about it for good things about grizzly bears. If we brought them back they would have to struggle to survive. The drought in California is going to limit the food and water available to the animals that already live in our state. It would be cruel to add another big predator. I believe that we should leave the bears where they are doing well like Alaska.

    1. I disagree with you Ty. There is the right amount of food for us and the animals. Even though there is not as much water that there used to be it is still enough for them to live. Plus they are endangered in west America.

    2. The drought in California is very serious. It affects all wildlife and their survival. If the bears have to go further to find food then they will be forced to be closer to people. Then people may be in danger.

    3. Not exactly, if they go east they will leave California and if they go south they will have to go to Mexico were then it is not our problem, and if they go any other way we just keep our distance.

  43. I think that Grizzlies should not be let back in California.
    It is getting dry in the sierras So there will be no food or water in the mountains. The grizzlies will take all the food and the black bears won’t have any. The black bears will have to eat from trash cans. That will have bears closer to humans resulting in the humans shooting the black bears. So the black bears numbers will drop. Introducing grizzlies will cause the extinction of the black bears.

  44. This is another reason grizzly bears should be reintroduced into California, they may help with conservation! ;)

  47. I agree with Hayden because it might take some food source away from some other animals like the black bear.
