    The reply that the City of  Anchorage has more bears than in all of Denalii National Park is incorrect. Denali has way more bears, and you gave them best answe.

    Anchorage has 300 Black Bears ( at the most) and 36 Grizzly Bears, a total of 336 bears.

    on the other hand Denali National Park has 2,700 Black Bears and 350 Grizzly Bears, a total of 3,050 bears.
