They will eat just about anything, since they are omnivores. Their principle diet depends on the location and the season. They will eat nuts, berries, grass and other plants, fish, insect larvae, small mammals like mice, voles, rats and rabbits, and will also hunt and kill larger game like deer, moo…se calves, or bison calves. They will also scavenge carcasses made by wolves, and may even be found in the garbage dump if they've found human food an easy meal to eat. (MORE)
Yes. Black bears will eat deer that have been caught by another predator or another bear, or one that they have hunted themselves.
No, but black bear cubs have a much higher chance than the adults to get eaten by a roaming grizzly.
the answer will be "none" because there are none of the animal as big as black bear, or there only can be other black bear or other bears.>_< BTW this answer is way wrong who ever wrote/typed this is crazy!
One black bear kills another black bear. He ate a lot of that bear, but he got full. So along came a wolf. He ravished himself on the bear too. Next the buzzards came along and the black birds. They finished off the bear. Some dogs came along and grabbed a lot of bones to take home to bury in their …backyards. (MORE)

Young Black Bears that… recently got cut loose from their mother are even smaller than that and are the ones that seem to get themselves in trouble. The Black Bear has been around for thousands of years because it can climb trees just as good as a cat. It's their best defense against danger. (MORE)

Black bears do not eat a lot of animals. They prefer nuts andberries as well as insects. The will eat dead carcasses of otheranimals and small rodents and rabbits.
Mule and white-tailed deer fawns, moose and elk calves and occasionally bald eagle chicks. Though it should be noted that 85% of a black bear's diet is vegetation.
Berries, grass, fish and grubs. They still will seek the opportunity to hunt and eat rodents or clean off a wolf kill when the opportunity commences itself.
If a black-bear is hungry it will eat ANYTHING. So therefore a black-bear will eat a cat.
A black bear can eat a lone wolf, but since wolves live in packs, the black bear would prefer not to. When it comes to carrion fights, black bears will attack wolves and sometimes drive them away.
Yes, people hunt, kill, and eat black bears. Bear meat is tasty, but very tough. Tenderizing and marinating the meat is a must if you plan on eating it.

Black Bears eat mostly fish and berries and any fruit that they may find. They rarely actively hunt other mammals. They will eat anything that they may find which is dead (like carrion from a wolf kill), as well as what they can find in human garbage.
Black bears may be the least carnivorous of the "carnivores" of North America. They consume a wide variety of seasonally abundant herbs, forbs, fruits, berries, nuts, and other plant parts and products. The specific plants may differ among the a number of ecoregions of North America. However, certai…n trends are evident. Spring foods are predominantly grasses, sedges, shoots and other high-protein lush green vegetation. Deer and other carcasses may be scavenged, as well as leftover nuts. Skunk cabbage is important in Massachusetts and squaw root in the southern Appalachians. During summer, bears shift to energy-rich "soft mast" foods such as huckleberries, blackberries, raspberries, grapes, and cherries. Protein-rich insects such as ants, wasps, and beetle larvae are usually taken. Crayfish, frogs, birds' eggs, mice, red squirrels, woodchucks, snowshoe hare, and other animal food are occasionally eaten. Then, in autumn (where available), "hard mast" items including acorns, hickory nuts, beechnuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts, and similar foods are taken. Corn is also eaten where available. Bears can make tremendous weight gains in fall, as much as 3 to 4 lbs. per day. However, in northern areas, where hard mast is lacking, bears must rely only on berry crops for weight gain and den after those are exhausted. Bears, especially adult males, and especially when foods are scarce, may travel up to 125 miles outside their home range in late summer and early fall to a concentrated food source before returning home to den..

No. Wolverines are a lot smaller than black bears, and wouldn't have a chance of killing one. But wolverines don't mind scavenging, and might well have a nibble if they came across an already dead bear.
There are no bear species in Africa any more. The Atlas bear from North Africa is extinct, with the last one hunted to death in Morocco in 1890. Its diet was probably roots, acorns and nuts. The Atlas bear was, however, a brown bear subspecies.

Black bears eat a variety of plants. These include young shoots, berries, acorns, pine cones, etc. In fact, plants make up a greater part of the bear's diet than meat does.
Anything that is can find and is palatable to humans. So if fastfood and milk shakes are available the bear will forsake insects,grubs, plants an fresh carrion. They are rarely fast enough andhealthy prey such as rabbits, deer, and raccoon slow enough to becaught.
