Background information

The brown bear (Ursus arctos) is a large bear species found across Eurasia and North America. They are one of the biggest livings carnivora today. Scientists believe they evolved from an extinct prehistoric bear species in Asia over half a million years ago. They migrated a quarter million years ago into Europe, about 100.000 years ago to Alaska and just over 12500 years ago more south in the new world. Their size today differs up to 30% in size depending on the subspecies around the world. Although bears try to avoid populated areas by humans it’s better to not agitate them. They, in most cases, would not actively attack a human but their claws and big teeth can be fatal.
