BLACK BEARS JUST WANT TO SNUGGLE

Little is known about the black bear population in Yellowstone or whether it has been affected by the increase in grizzly bear numbers. Black bears are commonly watched in the park, especially on the northern range and in the Bechler area of the park. In Yellowstone, about 50% of black bears are black in color, others are brown, blond, and cinnamon. These guys eat almost anything, including grass, fruits, tree cambium, eggs, insects, fish, elk calves, and carrion. These two were enjoying their day trying to stuff their faces.
