How to identify Black Bear tracks and signs

How to identify Black Bear tracks and signs | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Black bears are highly dexterous, being capable of opening screw-top jars and manipulating door latches. They are very strong with recorded cases of a black bear turning over 300 pound rocks with a single foreleg. They can run up to 25-30 mph, have excellent eyesight, and a sense of smell about seven times greater than a dog’s. They are also very good swimmers and unlike brown bears, are excellent climbers. http://wildernessarena.com/skills/tracking-and-signs/how-to-identify-black-bear-tracks-signs
