Many sources state that Grizzly Bears do not live in Colorado, but at one time, they did. According to Out There Colorado, the population of Grizzly Bears was thriving at one point until the 40's and 50's when their numbers started to decline. In 1953, Grizzly Bears were declared extinct in the state.

Do you think that there is a slight possibility that there may be a few Grizzly Bears left in remote parts of Colorado? We would love to hear what you think.
