Do bears migrate or are they pretty territorial?

    Bears do migrate, but not as far as birds, salmon or other animals do. Polar bear migration is probably the most commonly known migration activity of bears, but other types of bears migrate as well, such as grizzly bears; in fact, migration is one of the environmental issues facing grizzlies in Montana and Wyoming, where highways cutting through their habitat have prevented their normal migration from one mountain to another. As you probably know, a lot of bears, such as the American black bear, hibernate in the winter. In most species migration is a method of dealing with winter conditions, and hibernation is an alternative, so it is my understanding that bears who traditionally hibernate won’t really migrate in the sense that other animals do.
