Currently they are only found in Alaska, and parts of the northwestern United States including Idaho, Montana, Washington and Wyoming – extending as far south as Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park.
In the United States, grizzly bears can be found in Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Washington. The majority (30,000 bears) live in Alaska, with approximately 1,000-1,2000 bears living in five separate populations in the lower 48 states. Before the human population invaded their habitat, grizzly bears could be found anywhere from Alaska to Mexico and California to Ohio and were once common on the Great Plains. The map below shows the range of grizzly bears throughout the world.
Kristennoelle and Valkyrie are correct. According to my source, there are likely fewer than 1,000 left on the US mainland, largely due to hunting. Those that are the mainland can be found in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. The rest of the Grizzlies in the US can be found in Alaska.
