** American black bears, interestingly, are usually an aversion, as they prefer to avoid humans and mother bears will often simply make their cubs climb trees to get away. Get between a Grizzly bear and her cubs, however, and may God have mercy on your soul.

** American black bears, interestingly, are usually an aversion, as they prefer to avoid humans and mother bears will often simply make their cubs climb trees to get away. [[note]]Statistically, the solid majority of black bear attacks are by lone males defending territory or seeking food.
