ZT:  Meaning of "grizzly"
The word "grizzly" means "grizzled"; that is, golden and grey tips of the hair. T his is not to be confused with the word "grisly".  Nonetheless, after careful study,
naturalist George Ord formally classified the California grizzly in 1815—not for its hair, but for its character—
Ursus horribilis.   Thus Ord made a famous pun.
Indeed there were many accounts of grizzlies fighting and beating longhorn bulls.

Only about 1,500 grizzlies are left in the lower 48 states of the US.  Of these, about 800 live in Montana.   About 600 more live in Wyoming, in the Yellowstone -
Teton area.  There are an estimated 70–100 grizzly bears living in northern and eastern Idaho.

北美洲的土着对这里的棕熊怀着高度的恐惧。 Lewis - Clark 在探测北美洲中、西部的日记里对这种脾气坏的大熊有详细的描述。 美国的国家公园管理局公布的
资料指出 Grizzly Bears 是北美洲最强壮,有攻击性的肉食性动物。

大土佬儿在 Rocky Mountains 海拔 7,500 英尺的森林边缘遇到了一只棕熊。 它的个子不顶大。 脾气算是很好的。 只顾着吃草。 大概晓得大土佬儿皮粗,肉老,
胆儿贼大,人甚浑,不是好食物。 这倒好,它不惹我,我也不惹它。  这种爱吃素和 healthy food 的畜牲,没意思。 下次我馋熊掌的时候,要找只 challenging
一些的对象。 读者别学大土佬儿一个人进入大山里找 Grizzly Bears 拍照。 您嫩得多。它们可能会喜欢您的滋味。
