This Is Why You Shouldn't Try to Outrun a Grizzly Bear

(Video Link)

This video shows a grizzly bear running in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Can you keep up? The Daily Telegraph (warning: auto-start video) says that grizzly bears can run up to 35 MPH, which is well over Usain Bolt's top speed of 27 MPH.

But as the old joke goes: I don't have to outrun the bear. I just have to outrun you.

When I was working at a scout camp in the Adirondacks I chased a black bear down a road for a bit. I can verify the 35 mph run. Used that as a teaching lesson on animal speed and the fact that two legged humans, with some advantage for very short distances, are out run by those with four of them.
