Jesus fuck...the OG has to argue about every goddamn thing.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_black_bear#Relationships_with_humans

Although an adult bear is quite capable of killing a human, American black bears typically avoid confronting humans when possible. Unlike grizzly bears, which became a subject of fearsome legend among the European settlers of North America, black bears were rarely considered overly dangerous, even though they lived in areas where the pioneers had settled. Black bears rarely attack when confronted by humans, and usually limit themselves to making mock charges, emitting blowing noises and swatting the ground with their forepaws. However, according to Stephen Herrero in his Bear Attacks: Their Causes and Avoidance,[52] 23 people were killed by black bears from 1900 to 1980. The number of black bear attacks on humans is higher than those of the brown bear in North America, though this is largely because the black species considerably outnumbers the brown rather than greater aggressiveness.

Compared to brown bear attacks, aggressive encounters with black bears rarely lead to serious injury. However, the majority of black bear attacks tend to be motivated by hunger rather than territoriality, and thus victims have a higher probability of surviving by fighting back rather than submitting. Unlike grizzlies, female black bears do not display the same level of protectiveness to their cubs, and seldom attack humans in their vicinity.[52] However, occasionally, attacks by protective mothers do occur.[32] The worst recorded fatality incident occurred in May 1978, in which a black bear killed three teenagers who were fishing in Algonquin Park in Canada.[94] Another exceptional, spree-like attack occurred in August 1997 in Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in Canada, when an emaciated black bear attacked a child and mother, killing the mother as well as an adult man who tried to intervene. This bear was shot while mauling a fourth victim.[95][96]

The majority of attacks happened in national parks, usually near campgrounds, where the bears had become habituated to close human proximity and food conditioned.[52] 1,028 incidents of black bears acting aggressively toward people, 107 of which resulted in injury, were recorded from 1964 to 1976 in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and occurred mainly in tourist hotspots where people regularly fed the bears handouts.[94] In almost every case where open dumps or handouts that had previously attracted black bears were ceased, the amount of aggressive encounters with bears have decreased precipitously over time.[32] However, in the aforementioned case of the spree attack in Liard River Hot Springs, the attacking bear was believed to have been previously almost fully dependent on a local garbage dump that had closed and was starving as a result of the loss of that food source.[95] Attempts to relocate bears are typically unsuccessful, as black bears seem to be able to return to their home range even without familiar landscape cues.

 

The bottom line is they are not the most dangerous land animal to humans.

You're the only one that seemed to have a problem with the wording of the article.

It's really not important if it's "one of the most dangerous animals on the planet". All you have to know is that a black bear can fuck you up if it feels like it.

tetris - If a yellow lab was drowning in the ocean, what would you do? I’m betting you jump in and save his life, right? Well what if the victim was a 400lb bear. What do you do then?

Well after a huge black wandered into a Florida community and accidentally walked towards the ocean after being shot with a tranquilizer, a hero stepped up to do the unthinkable, and save one of the most dangerous animals on the planet. Phone Post 3.0

Black bears are not one of the most dangerous animals on the planet.   Brown bears are the ones you have to worry about.

A woman killed by a bear at one of Canada’s major oil sands sites on Wednesday was with several workers who tried in vain to scare the animal away. The 36-year-old Suncor employee was an instrument technician who was doing electrical work at a job site near Fort McMurray, Alta., when the bear attacked her Wednesday. Phone Post 3.0

Entreri - Nice job.

These sport hunters like Rogan, disgusting.

The worst are the poachers, Ivory poachers:

Big difference. Sport hunters pump hundreds of thousands of dollars into the economy for the care of wildlife.

Poachers are thieves that steal from everyone.

BTW - these haters of hunters who claim to be lovers of wildlife never do anything that reaches the contributions of hunters to wildlife. Phone Post 3.0

You are talking out of your ass.

From the moment that pic of rogan with his kill was posted, it was always stated that it was taken to be eaten. Phone Post 3.0
