Don't you think that the circumstances and surroundings would
play a large part in determining which would win? For example,
if it was in tight quarters, or a matter of protecting the
offspring, a full-grown grizzly stands more than a fair chance.
Additionally, what about endurance? If it was a long fight with
many injuries, once again I feel the bear would have the edge
