The bears at Yosemite: A rough year.

As the season winds down, Ursa will be hibernating soon. (Ursa is bear in Latin – 1 year of HS class.)

But they have had a real active year.  In 2014, SO FAR, here are the bear stats. There were a total of 154 incidents. This resulted in $7,113 in “lost human money.”

    with grins, that’s Ursus for the genus, and I don’t think there is gender equity in species names. ours are Ursus americanus, so females don’t get to be Ursa.

    grizzlies are now Ursus arctos; horribilis is a subspecies now, and not the second part of the name. they are the Glacier and Yellowstone ones, I think.
