Wildlife experts call him “The Boss”, and he’s likely one of the most badass bears to ever walk the Earth.
Formally known as grizzly bear No. 122, he was the first to break out of his hibernation this spring in Banff, and he’s already made headlines because he basically doesn’t give a f–k.
You see, one of the ways “The Boss” likes to assert his dominance is by eating other bears. Yes, that’s right, cannabilizing other bears. After all, months of hibernation can make a massive animal hungry, which is why he’s already eaten two of them.
It really doesn’t get more “alpha” than that.
“The Boss” also made the news when he broke into a dump and wandered through Banff’s Central Park in the middle of the day. Because he doesn’t care if you’re busy sightseeing, or if it’s your property, the park belongs to him. The bear has also fathered at least five cubs from various mothers, meaning he’s likely a candidate for a Maury Show paternity test.
Did we mention he’s also been hit by a train? Wildlife experts told the CBC that he lived to tell the tale. And knowing The Boss, he probably just walked it off.
It’s really no surprise why he’s considered the most dominant bear in all of Banff, Yoho and Kootenay national parks.
So remember, stay safe out there. Because there are definitely some bears out there that you don’t want to mess with.
