Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A huge brown creature found in temperate woodland. It is known for its ferocious attack, usually when it or its young are threatened.

Grizzly bears are now trainable into War/hunting grizzly bears at the Kennels.

Grizzly bears are a popular choice for war animals, as they are very common. They come readily tamed with elven caravans almost every time, as elves tend to live in temperate areas. Furthermore they can be easily caught in cage traps, tamed and trained by yourself, without the assistance of a Dungeon master.

They make great armies. Much larger and stronger than your regular dog, they can make fast work of a goblin ambush if they stick together and outnumber them. Their powerful jaws can puncture straight through your common iron chainmail, making a nice snack out of them.

Having a couple of Elite Marksdwarves with 10 bears assigned is a splendid idea, as the bears will act as a biting meat shield and your crossbowdwarf will take care of the tougher enemies which outmatch the bears.
