The average galloping speed of a horse is between 30-35 MPH, and the top speed for a Grizzly bear is 34.8 MPH. Think about that for a moment, this bear can run faster than the speed limit in a school zone.

Grizzly Bears

– Black bears are afraid of grizzly bears! If they see a Grizzly black bears will most likely run away.
– Humans cannot outrun bears, if you see any bear do not run away, this may make the bear think that you are prey. You should stand your ground and put your arms up to appear as large as possible.
– Most bear charges are bluffs, and the bear will turn away, however if you are attacked the best thing to do is curl into the fetal position to protect vital organs.
– Grizzly bears cannot sustain a top speed run for very long, especially with their winter coats. They tire very quickly due to their large bulk.
– The average Grizzly bear weighs over 550 lbs and is over 8 feet long.
– Interestingly the average housecat’s top speed is 29.8 MPH
