To see bears in Yosemite is not uncommon. There are about 300 to 500 black bears in Yosemite, although they look more brown than black. If you encounter a bear then keep your distance for safety. Black bears may show dominance by bluff charging, especially when guarding food or cubs. Attacks are rare, and no one has been killed or seriously injured by a black bear in Yosemite.
