KODIAKBROWNBEARS

Writ t en by: Larry Van Dael e Kodiak Area Wil dl if e Biol ogist

- K odiak bear s are the lar gest bear s in the wor ld. A lar ge male can stand over 10' tall when on his hind legs, and 5' when on all four legs. They weigh up to 1,500 pounds. Females are about 20% smaller, and 30% lighter than males. - K odiak bear s are a unique subspecies of the brown or gr izzly bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi). They live exclusively on the islands in the K odiak Archipelago and have been isolated from other bear s for about 12,000 year s. - There are about 3,500 K odiak bear s; a density of about 0.7 bear s per square mile. - Bear s that have recently left their mother s, at ages 3-5, have a high mor tality r ate as they face the wor ld on their own. Some of these sub-adults are the ?j uvenile delinquents? of bear society and are also the ones most likely to cause problems with people. - K odiak bear s begin enter ing their dens in late October. Pregnant sows are the fir st to go to dens, males are the last. M ales begin emer ging from their dens in ear ly Apr il, while sows with new cubs may stay in dens until late June. Some males may forego denning, staying awake all winter. - Bear s are natur ally diur nal (active dur ing the day), but when faced with competition for food or space, they adopt a more noctur nal (active at night) life style. - Only one per son has been killed by a bear on K odiak in the past 75 year s. About once ever y other year a bear inj ures a per son.
