Reviewing predatory bear attacks chapter for new book (SAFE with Bears) and discovered: 17 attacks (6 from 1994 to 1997; 11 from 2000 to 2006); 12 black bears, 4 grizzlies, 1 undetermined; 15 fatalities (12 by blacks, 4 grizzlies, 1 undetermined); 11 in Canada (7 in BC). I’m still revising. You still think grizzlies are more dangerous? Or is it just because there are substantially more blacks? Scary stuff.
