Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A large omnivorous predator found in temperate woodlands. Mainly living on berries, it will also steal carcasses from other hunters. Though normally a docile animal, it has been known to kill in a predatory attack.

Black bears are dangerous creatures that raid your food and drink stockpiles. They are mainly a threat early in a fort's existence before defenses have been established.

In any given year, up to three black bears may appear. They are always solitary, and hibernate during the winter. This makes winter a decent time to set up a bear trap: surround a small food stockpile with cage traps, and black bears will be yours, assuming it doesn't get overwhelmed by other natural thieves (like raccoons, grizzly bears or foxes) first.

Black bears can be tamed and have a reasonably high pet value of 300. This makes them a fairly decent option for a highly rewarding breeding program: black bear parts are worth twice as much as those of more domestic animals. However, unlike grizzly bears, black bears cannot be trained for hunting or war, unless you add a [TRAINABLE] tag to the raw file. In DF2014, there is an even more fun variant of the black bear; the giant black bear.

Bears in general lack the [GRAZER] tag which means they don't require pastures. This makes them an ideal component of a meat industry.
