So it's not a brown bear, it's just a brown bear.

Got it.

Black is the new brown.

So I should get my drop gun and crack bag to toss on it, after we shoot it?

Perhaps we should default to the more inclusive BIBOC?

This bears repeating.

It's easy to get confused and relay the wrong information when dealing with bears, because everyone is so out of breath from running away from bears.

And thus we see the problem of basing species names on appearance.

That's a thin looking bear.

This is also a brown Black bear, but it's actually probably a hybrid because she was huge, easily 2x the size of a typical Black bear:

How to tell what kind of bear has broken into your home:

The bear is scared away by your tiny dogs: Black Bear
The bear kills your dogs: Brown Bear
The bear eats your bamboo: Panda Bear. Also you live in a zoo.
You froze to death last winter, and the bear scavenges your corpse: Polar Bear

Better to meet a brown black bear than a black brown bear.

This is SoCal. Bears don't hibernate here. It doesnt get that cold and there's plenty of yummy garbage to eat all year round. On my street it's Monday morning smorgasbord. They ate all the fruit off my trees and broke all the branches, basically killing my plum trees. Fark'em. That's not cute. Anyway ursus americanus can be most shades of black or tan or even blonde. Ursus arctos are grizzlies and don't mess with them. TIL that some people call them brown bears?  Why?  That's confusing.

Grizzlies and brown bears, despite being the same bears, aren't the same bears. It depends on how far they are from the coast.

Unless they are European brown bears, which is different.

after watching the video, I believe that bear was more annoyed by little yappy dogs than scared of little yappy dogs.
the bear did seem totally impressed with that house.

If I remember correctly from my mammology course 45 years ago, grizzly bears and brown bears are almost identical genetically.  The grizzly bear is the name for those in the Rocky Mountains from Wyoming north into Canada.  The brown bears (aka Alaskan Browns) are their siblings from Alaska (& the Yukon?).  The biggest difference between them is size with the Alaskan Brown Bears being much larger -- likely due to a richer diet of Salmon.

What kind of bear is best?
 
2021-04-18 12:30:23 AM  
he peed on the steps as he made his leave.

is it too early to order a tommstone?

That bear looks like it has mange on its front half. The front half should be as plush and fluffy as the back half and it is not. The head, part of the chest and at least one of the legs. Poor bear. Not feeling well, looking for food, in a very intimidating environment, and then chased by dogs. Of course he/she ran away.
