What do you call a group of bears?

A swarm, apparently.

    I would have thought a problem would be more accurate.

    Probably too confusing to use the correct collective noun. At least as a headline. Sloth or Sleuth would sound funny to most people. Though as Will Brown states “problem” would be accurate and wouldn’t confuse. Though I kind of like the thought of confusing the reader. Makes them want to figure out WTF?

    Having come too near to a pair of Grand Teton black bear cubs on a trail around Jenny Lake, and been subjected to momma bear rushing closer in a mock charge, I’d say call ’em what you want, just stay clear of ’em.

    I recall thinking as that bear closed the distance with a lot of noise, and in very little time, that my only job was to stay between momma and my young daughter.

    Problem is accurate, sloth may apply in winter months, sleuth had nothing to do with it.

    Maybe it was just a bear flash mob?

    Regardless of the correct term, we can be certain that trouble was bruin. Such numbers would be unbearable in most any circumstance, and confronting them would only ensure a grizzly outcome.
