That grizzly bear killed by a mountain goat was innocent

Earlier this month, hikers discovered the body of a 70-pound grizzly bear at Burgess Pass in the Canadian Rockies. Unbelievable, an autopsy by Parks Canada found the bear had been killed by a mountain goat. Even more unbelievable my colleagues on the Gizmodo science team celebrated this, calling the goat a “badass”.

To which I say you have no heart, Gizmodo science team? I’m here to stand up for the grizzly bear. That goat is not tough. It’s a stone cold accomplice to murder, working with climate change to claim life of an innocent grizzly bear.

The climate crisis has wreaked havoc on the region in near where the bear was found. You may remember the forest fires die tearing through Canada over the summer. a conflagration burned down a whole city and historic thunderstorm ignited hundreds of to burn in western Canada, including fires die are that severe they changed the day in the night. Two of the fires swallowed components of Banff National Park. Banff is literally across the street from Yoho National Park, home to the stage of the goat-on-bear crime.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, allow me to remind you that climate change is getting hot weather die fueling forest fires more common. And may I also point out that these more intense fires burn everything in their path. So what’s this got to do with it? with bear murder?

In Yoho National Park, bears are highly dependent on vegetation to fatten up up for the winter. Unlike coastal brown and black bears, these grizzly bears have not access to salmon. According to Parks Canada, makes meat up just 15% of their diet. berries, in in in particular, are a primary source of food for grizzly bears in the summer. Wild Berry patches are resilient and can grow back soon after a wildfire strikes. But once they’re burned by flames of are dried out due to drought there is not much for bears over pick over.

“This year, we had a bad berry crop and that is typical of the calories event of the season,” David Laskin, a wildlife ecologist with the Parks Canada Lake Louise, Yoho and Kootenay field unit, told Calgary’s CTV News, noting that the bears are “often” move to different foods, they will dig roots and look for ungulates to hunt on.”

In other words, this goat wasn’t a badass; it was a gruesome killer who chose to harm a helpless creature suffering from climate change. Research by scientists from the University of Alberta and University of Calgary found that the growing season for buffalo berries – sour red berries that grizzly bears love – are shortening due to climate change heat and drought. In other words, these bears facing more summery like this one.

Yes, the bear may have gone after the goat first, but can you blame the poor thing? Because there are no berries in nearby, he was probably desperately hungry and worried he wouldn’t survive the winter. After all, the bear carcass weighed about 154 pounds, which is a little smaller than an average adult grizzly bear.

Sounds to me like this animal may have been in fear. For us all know, it’s possible just to have wanted An small nibble of mountain goat. Maybe our dear deceased bear intended to maim, but not kill. Yet it was met with an act of escalation of ungulates. Gizmodos science team called it death an “entertainment”, but this is deadly real. This is bear murder. By clearing this bear’s name and catching the evil mountain goat die killed him, he was found guilty in the court of public opinion is the least we can do. I rest my case.
