What Consumes a Bear?

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife claims that humans are the only other known predators of black bears. Cougars, bobcats, and coyotes all prey on bear cubs, yet none of these creatures eat adult bears.

Male bears may prey on their own species’ pups. Black bears are regarded as an apex predator, which implies that once they reach adulthood, they have no predators. Black bears are considered apex predators, meaning they are the only predators in their immediate area. For instance, tigers and lions might hunt on black bears, but since they never come into contact with these creatures in their natural habitat, they do not qualify as natural predators.
