Grizzly bears eat a variety of plants at specific stages of growth throughout
the year; meat constitutes about 15% of their diet. Bears have about seven
months to meet their nutritional requirements for the entire year. They must
move up and down in elevation and across the landscape to take advantage of
these widely scattered food sources.
