Mountain lion, or African lion? North American Mountain lions are smaller than African lions. It's doubtful a N. Am Mountain Lion could kill a full grown grizzly. Any full grown lion could kill a grizzly cub bear though.

No. A bear, no matter what species, would easily kill a mountain lion.

The grizzly bear can kill a lion or a lioness with swipes of those powerful, sharp claws and strong swats. A large lion and a large lioness working together might bring down the grizzly bear depending on how big is the grizzly bear. Since grizzly bears have such big size and powerful claws that could kill a large lion or large lioness, it is quite strong enough to kill both of them. In this case, the grizzly bear would kill the large lioness and the large lion, but might get wounded.

An African lion (assuming that's what the questioner is asking about) lives on an entirely different continent than most bears. Thus, no, a lion cannot kill a bear. Mountain lions also are not able to kill a bear because they would rather avoid an animal that is able to defend itself. A lion can kill a black bear, but will lose to a grizzly bear, kodiak bear, brown bear, or polar bear.

Probably not. A grizzly bear has more strength and more muscles than a large lion when grizzly bears weigh 1500 pounds. Large male lions weigh about 600-700 pounds, and have not enough strength to bring down a grizzly bear. Even if the large lion tried to attack the grizzly bear, the grizzly bear would kill it with its powerful swipes of those claws or tear the lion with its jaws.

Black bears and grizzly bears kill mountain lions. They both grow much bigger than mountain lions, and also are stronger.
