The Grizzly Bear is one of the largest land predators in the world, let alone Yellowstone. They can weigh up to 600 pounds, and are not slow at all. They are not the most dangerous animal in the park however, as the American Bison hurts the most people every year.
Yellowstone’s largest native predator is the formidable Grizzly Bear, which can weigh anywhere from 350-600 pounds, move at speeds in excess of 35 miles per hour, and is very territorial (especially during breeding season, where mothers become extremely sensitive regarding territorial intrusions, as they perciee the slightest newcomer to be a threat to their newborn cubs).
Interestingly enough, the Grizzly is omnivorous, one of the few large land predators who feed on a varied diet, of prey ranging in size and mobility from trout to buffalo to berries.
