If you think Big Bears are just in the west and only cutesy bears in Japan then you are wrong. There are many Big Brown Bear or Ussuri brown bears in Japan. Some also call them Grizzly black bear. they are mostly found in Hokkaido. It is believed that this kind of bear interact with fishermen with their cubs and no casualties or accidents ever recorded. Sounds like a friendly bear like Rilakkuma.
They usually eat plants in the mountains, fish, small and large mammals and insects. These bears are actually quite big that can reach up to 500 Kg caused by feeding on crops.
These animals vulnerable species and their numbers are declining so it is an endangered species in Japan so please don`t hunt them here.
If you get very fortunate to spot them around your area, I have some tips for you to be safe or prevent an accident.
First, If you see this Big brown bear near you, Don`t scream! speak in a low voice if you need to. If you scream, the bear might think you want to attack him.
Second, Don`t run! if you want to escape, move away slowly. If the bear is going towards you, it`s making you back off so move away but don`t run. you won`t want that bear to be the next harambe.
So be careful when you see these bears and I hope you`ll feel how magnificent and cute these creatures are.
