The Black Bear




The Black Bear is one of the most common species of bears. It occurs through 39-50 states. One of those states is Washington. Right now there is an estimation of 600,000 black bears. There use to be 2 million of them before people started building cities the size of New York and electrical power plants.

If the bear charges and stops half way, it is trying to make you run away. If the bear charges and does not stop you must fight back. You have to use everything you have with you.

Black bears can weigh from 125-500 pounds. They eat mice, squirrels, fish, ants, bird’s eggs, lambs, pigs, acorns, berries, fruits, nuts and honey.

The black bears can eat horsetails, grasses, aquatic plants such as lilies, elk, moose calves, deer fawns, ground squirrels, ants, wasps, bees, and carrion. And they eat different berries like chokecherry, huckleberries.
