California was once known as the “Bear State Republic” and even sports a grizzly on its own state flag. Nevertheless, grizzlies no longer reside in the Golden State.
Some 1,700 grizzlies roam the Lower 48, while another 32,000 make their home in Alaska, where they are not protected. Another 21,000 reside in Canada.
The results of a DNA test done on the bear revealed it was just a blonde grizzly bear, not a polar-grizzly hybrid.
