Wild bear meat should be cooked completely due to possible Tularemia and other possible diseases. Bears carry the same diseases that pigs do so the same caution should be used as with pork. Several famous arctic explorers have died when they ate uncooked polar bear meat but don't let that scare you as it is safe when cooked completely just as pork is.
