Despite its impressive stature, the North American black bear is actually the continent's smallest bear species. The black bear is the most common bear species worldwide, and due to its close proximity to urban areas, the most frequently sighted and interacted with by humans.
Bears are a prominent symbol in American history and folklore. The Navajo prayed to the black bear, and believed that it was the strongest of all the bears. Human encounters with black bears rarely lead to serious injury or fatalities, despite how common they are relative to other bear species, In fact, only 10% of all human interactions with a black bear resulted in injury, and almost all attacks were due to a mother bear protecting her cubs.
