What Do Glacier Bay Bears Eat?
Glacier Bay Bear Foods
Both black and brown bears are omnivores and eat a wide variety of plant and animal foods in Glacier Bay. Bears do not defend a specific territory like some other large predators, and they tend to roam widely in search of food, the males more so than the females. However, bears will often defend a limited food resource, especially a carcass, from encroachment by other bears or humans.
