Tiger is a metaphor for bad decisions, specifically getting involved with gangs. Great for grade school kids.
But a grizzly is much more fearsome than a polar bear. The grizzly has a shorter, thicker neck, heavily built skull and more powerful shoulder structure. Despite being a good foot shorter, the grizzly has a trump card. Their claws, having evolved as digging tools, are also unmatched at opening body carcasses.
Sometimes, when the ice melts, polar bears have been known to be driven off by grizzlies, when they move south into the grizzlies feeding area. Cougars and wolf packs and other bears flee from a large grizzly, or else become dinner. The grizzly bear has enormous bone and muscle density.
They have developed into huge and enormously powerful animals. Big cat biology is very different. They have evolved powerful elastic muscles over a low weight, low density bone structure to suit their purpose of chasing down prey.
The Californians of the late 19th century staged well-documented pit fights with grizzlies and spanish bulls. This is one account of a fight between a lb grizzly and a lb male lion. The grizzly had never fought a lion before and the lion surprised it by leaping 15 feet in the air.
There was blood but little real damage to the bear, because beneath the extremely thick skin is a deep layer of fat.
The animals broke apart, and the grizzly tried to bite and swipe at the lion, who was far too quick. The lion gave up on frontal assaults and tried to attack the bear from the rear. The bear, showing agility not seen up to this point, turned, grabbed the lion, and lifted him into the air.
The bear then lifted his opponent into the air and threw him against the side of the cage, knocking the lion unconscious. I have read that Siberian tigers do sometimes kill local bears that are smaller, but larger local bears also kill Siberian tigers.
But neither the larger Asian bears or the Siberian tigers are any match for a large Grizzly.Instead of riding a tiger, Churchill knew that it was far better to walk freely amongst those with whom he worked - asking for ideas and treating people with respect and loyalty.
And even though, politically speaking, Churchill had his "ups and downs," he never lost . The book Riding the tiger is about a boy named Danny who was new in the neighborhood. Danny didn't know the fear that people had of the tiger so he went on the tiger's back.
Danny was warned that once he gets on the tiger's back it's hard to get of.4/5.
