Myth #2: If charged by a Bear, climb a tree

This one is relatively simple to answer….

Bears are actually excellent climbers!

Bears are actually excellent climbers! Black Bears are the better climbers between Black Bears and Grizzlies, but Grizzlies can also climb trees, just not as fast as a Black Bear. Moral of the story: don’t climb a tree if a bear charges you…they’ll follow you up there, and then you’ll be stuck up a tree with a bear!
