About the Animal - The American Black Bear
The American Black bear is one of the most common species of bear in North America. They are omnivores and their diet depends on their location and the season. They tend to live in forested areas but will leave those areas in search of food. They have a tendency to be attracted to human populated areas due to the immediate availability of food. Black bears currently inhabit much of their original Canadian range. The current range of black bears in the United States is steady throughout most of the Northeast, and within the Appalachian Mountains almost continuously from Maine to north Georgia, the northern Midwest, the Rocky Mountain region, the West Coast and Alaska. Black bear weight tends to vary according to age, sex, health, and season. In autumn, their pre-den weight tends to be higher than when black bears come out from their dens in the spring. Black bears on the East Coast tend to be heavier on average than those on the West Coast. Adult males typically weigh between 126–551 lbs and females weigh less at 90–375 lbs.
