This black bear and her two cubs stopped traffic in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. They made it safely across the road. Black bears are smaller than grizzly bears, with males weighing between 210 and 315 pounds and females weighing between 135 and 200 pounds. They eat rodents, insects, elk calves, cutthroat trout, pine nuts, grasses and other vegetation and have short, curved claws, making them expert climbers.
Yellowstone is one of the few areas south of Canada where black bears coexist with grizzly bears. Yellowstone National Park Wyoming
