The oldest of the three they have, Tonk is now seven and approximately 650 lbs. The trainer, Dexter Osborn and his wife have had Tonk since he was 6 wks old.
All were either rescue bears or born in captivity so survival in the wild would be difficult for them.
Dexter and his wife explained during The Grizzly Experience, an attraction at the Big E this year, what to do if you should you come across a bear as well as several facts about the Grizzly:

Did you know their claws are between 2-4 inches long?
