Black Bear Photos from Idaho, Montana ,Wyoming and the Great Lakes region

The American Black Bear (Ursus americanus) is the most common bear species native to North America. Black Bears live throughout much of the continent, from northern Canada and Alaska south into Mexico, from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Black Bears reside in 41 of the 50 U.S. states and all Canadian provinces except Prince Edward Island. Black bear populations in the east-central and southern United States remain in the protected mountains and woodlands of parks and preserves, though bears will occasionally wander outside the parks' boundaries and have set up new territories, in some cases on the margins of urban environments in recent years as their populations increase. Although there were probably once as many as two million black bears in North America long before European colonization, the population declined to a low of 200,000 as a result of habitat destruction and unrestricted hunting. By current estimates, more than 800,000 are living today on the continent
