Thankfully, in NJ
, we've only blacks. I've seen grizzlies and one humongous Kodiak bear (the famous, now deceased, 'Goliath') at the Space Farms Zoo in Sussex, NJ
That was the biggest damned bear I (or anyone else, I guess) ever saw! "Largest bear in the World -Goliath - 2000 pounds, 12 ft. tall (Guiness World Records) lived at Space Farms 1967-1991." I asked his keeper once, since Goliath seemed quite amiable, if he'd go into the cage with him. He replied with a stern glare, "NO!" A movie from the 70's called "Grizzly" tried to do a 'Jaws in the Woods' story with a FIFTEEN foot monster bear tearing up campers and hunters, It used a 10 foot tall, 1600 lb. trained Grizzly to portray the giant, which was supposed to be a Pleistocene Era throwback. Not a great movie but it had its moments. And yes, those polar bears can REALLY be bad news. Forget those cuddly, CGI Coca-cola commercials!
