Bears of Yosemite

By M. E. Beatty

Of all the wild animals in our national parks, the bear undoubtedly ranks first in public interest. There is something so human in the animal that its droll antics are doubly appealing to man. Even its apparent laziness is amusing, and the playfulness of bear cubs is a never-ending source of delight.

Two types of bears are found within the borders of the United States proper: viz., the grizzly and the black bear. The grizzly is now quite restricted in range, and may best be seen in Yellowstone National Park and sparingly in Glacier National Park. The California Grizzly is now believed to be extinct, but as they were once fairly common in the Yosemite region, no account of the bears of Yosemite would be complete without some mention of them.
