Grizzly bears around Lake Simcoe
5 years 2 months ago #253
Grizzlies once lived in region.
Grizzly bears once wandered around the Lake Simcoe area, before there was a Lake Simcoe.
It is difficult to believe that the bears could have occurred here, especially in view of the sizzling summer temperatures that have been experienced over the past few months.
But, sophisticated C-14 collagen tests confirm that a well-preserved skull found nearby definitely belonged to a grizzly.
“This remarkable well-preserved specimen died some 17,700 years ago,” confirmed researchers at the Royal Ontario Museum.
