Poll: Would you go to Yosemite if there were grizzly bears?

Not too long ago, grizzly bears ruled much of California from the coastal mountains in the south to the Cascade Range in the north. No other creature in the land could outfight Ursus arctos horribilis. Not until humans nearly drove this majestic creature into oblivion. It’s the official state animal of California, even though it doesn’t live here anymore. Now, 92 years after the last California grizzly bear was killed in Tulare County, there’s an effort to return them to their ancestral homelands.
