Black Bear Pt1

Black Bears are a common sight in our area.  Unlike the Grizzly Bears they do not congregate in great numbers around the salmon rivers.  They would if they could, but the Grizzlies are the more dominant bear and push the Black Bears out.  Black Bears are smaller and have short, very sharp claws that allow them to climb trees with ease.  Grizzly’s long, curved digging claws prevent them from climbing, except as young cubs.
