Mexican grizzly bear

The Mexican grizzly bear (Ursus Arctos Nelsoni) is an extinct grizzly that ranged from Mexico to as far north as Colorado and the Mexican grizzly bear was the smallest of all North American grizzlies. This picture was probably taken in the late 1940's or 50's. The Mexican grizzly bear was declared extinct in 1964. They weren't particularly dangerous and Mexico had the coolest, gentlest bears in the world and now they're extinct. It was one of the 2 bears native to Mexico and the other is the American black bear. The last specimen recorded was a female shot at Chihuahua in 1964.
