Are they a danger? Eaten by them?
Mostly dangerous if threatening/being too close to cubs or scaring them off of food; otherwise, they’re generally of an avoidance tendency.

American Black Bears are typically not aggressive towards humans. Of course there are exceptions .... if they feel threatened, if people get between a mother and her cubs and the most dangerous element .... If people have fed the bears and they associate humans with food. At that point they can be very unafraid and aggressive!
