White Grizzly Bear Eating Sedge Grass
An important part of a grizzly bear’s diet is high protein sedge grass. This grass grows in coastal meadows that are flooded with salt water every high tide. The grass is often submerged in swampy water, the tips iced with dried salt. Grizzly bears eat the grass in spring and early summer. Once it goes to seed in mid – late summer, the grizzlies move on to other food sources like salmon.
