森林Inhabit[6].NocturnalIn the daytime, I rest in tree caves, rock fissures, caves, etc., but sometimes I have activities during the daytime when there are fruits.[6].. In summer it lives at an altitude of 3,600 meters, but in winter it moves to a lower altitude.[6].. Siberian populations hibernate for 4-5 months, while southern Pakistan populations do not[6].

Fruits, sprouts, small vertebrates,昆虫Eat invertebrates, carcasses of animals, etc.[6]..According to a survey of the contents of 1975 feces conducted in Nagano Prefecture, Japan from 1977 to 135, 47.4% (64) of feces contained plant matter and animals, and 39.3% (53) of feces containing only plant matter. There is a report that the ratio of feces containing only animal substances was 13.3% (13).[15]..In this survey, 71.8% of feces containing plant matterMizunara(The number of feces contained was 84), 19.7% of chocolate vines (23), 15.4%Aralia elata(18 pieces), to 9.4%Yama grape(11 pieces), to 8.5%A. argutaIt is reported that a part of (10) was included[15]..In feces containing animal quality, 57.3% were ants (47), 36.6% were wasps and honeybees (30), and 9.8%.Japanese hare(8), 4.9% beetles, 3.7%Japanese serowIt is reported that a part of (3) was included[15].Bird of prey(Golden eagle) Hina and large herbivore (Japanese serow) cubs are captured and eaten.[16].

Climb to the top of the tree to feed on acorns (nuts and nuts), but cannot move to the branches[17].. For that reason, the branches are pulled close to hand for feeding, but at that time the branches break and leave a trace of foraging like a bird's nest called a bear shelf on the tree.[17].. Bear shelves tend to be low in good harvest years and high in bad harvest years[17].

The breeding style is embryonic. Siberian population mates in June-July and Pakistan population mates in October[6].. Mainly spawns two cubs[6].. Lactation period is three and a half months[6].. The cub opens its eyes one week after birth and lives with its mother for 1-2 years after birth[6].. Matures 3-4 years after birth[6].. Life in captivity is about 33 years[6].. As an example of long-term survival in captivity as of 1991, there is an example of an individual (coro) that died in an estimated 39 years and 2 months (captured in March 1948-April 3) at Asa Zoo in Hiroshima City.[18]..There is an example of an individual (Sakura) who died at the Kyoto City Zoo in an estimated 39 years (visited in May 1975-November 5).[19].

There is also concern about capturing cubs as pets, removing fangs and claws, and fighting with dogs.[3].. It will not be seen in Afghanistan, and there is a high risk of extinction in Bangladesh and the Korean Peninsula[7].. It is said to have been smuggled to the People's Republic of China and the Korean Peninsula, although it may be subject to protection but may also be poached.[7].. International commerce is prohibited, but there is a record that 1970 animals were imported to the Republic of Korea in 1993-2,867, for example.[7].1977 The subspecies Balochistan black bear,1979 Listed by species in CITES Annex I[2].. The population of the former Soviet Union in the 1970s was between 6,000 and 8,000.1985 Population in the United States is estimated at 4,600-5,400[7]..

U. t. Formosanus Taiwanese black bear
It was targeted for hunting by natives.BununTraditionally, hunting is traditionally contraindicated for its common ancestors, but it is difficult to get hunted, so it was considered a hero if the hunt was successful.[12].. This species is not mainstream because it is aggressive, difficult to hunt, and rare among natives, but mainly ungulates[12].. On the other hand, in the survey to the Bunun people, they may be hunted by being caught by ungulate traps and traversers, or by accident.[12].. Traditionally, it is believed that each part of the Han people is medicinal and the value of the gallbladder is particularly high.However, because of the high culture, taste, and external market value of the indigenous people, parts other than meat are sold outside the market. Not sold between natives for sale[12].. Since the 1960s, the number of restaurants that handle wildlife meat has increased, and hunters have started selling meat and whole parts.[12].. For example, around Yushan National Park, hunting for sale was 1980% before the 22s, but increased to 1990% in the 59s.[12].
It was legally protected in Taiwan in 1989, but it can also be poached[12].

Therefore, it is considered that individuals east of Lake Biwa or individuals east of Lake Biwa were artificially transferred and then captured.[20].grandmother-Mt. KatamukiyamaSystemKyushu mountain area-Mt. SefurisanHowever, there is a problem that even if there are wild individuals, it is impossible to conclude that it is a Kyushu population without genetic analysis based on the precedent that even if there were wild individuals, the invaded individuals were discovered from Honshu.[21].

It has been a target of hunting in Japan since ancient times.On the other hand, some local governments are banned from hunting, as described in the endangered areas above.[22][24][25].
Damage to livestock, crops and humans is occurring in Japan as well.[7]..As an example, 2004 victims (including 109 dead) nationwide in 2, 2006 (including 145 dead) in 3, and 2010 (including 147 dead) were reported in 2. Has been[26].KazunoIn 2016, seven people were damaged in the short period from late May to June, and four of them died and their bodies were eaten.[27]..It is often near the boundary between the forest and the human settlement area as well as in the forest.Also, bears have a habit of showing their backs and chasing those who run away, so if you encounter one, you should quietly step back.[28]..Apiaries and fish farms are also heavily damaged by bears.Mainly in Japan from June to JulyLarch-Cedar-CypressIt is considered a vermin in the forestry industry because it strips the bark and eats the cambium.[14].. With all-round peeling, it will die, and with partial peeling, if the peeling is large, it will be weakened, and damage such as deterioration of the value of timber due to corrosion etc. will occur.[14].. The reason for bark stripping is not well understood, and there are theories that food is scarce and that bark is edible, and that females are attracted to breeding behavior.[14].. Bark stripping damageWest Japan OfThe Pacific OceanIt has been said that the side is the center[14], In recent years in western JapanSea of ​​JapanSide orTohoku regionBut it has been confirmed to be serious[29].. In a survey of fecal contents, blood urea concentration, and blood hemoglobin concentration conducted in Gifu Prefecture in 1998-2000UwamizuzakuraThe ratio of the bark of coniferous trees increased in the year when the ratio of the fruit of the Some reports suggest that bark will be stripped.[30]
The number of individuals in Japan was estimated to be around 10,000. But the poor crop year of nuts2004 About 2,300 heads,2006 Killed about 4,600 bears[31] The number of facts is unknown because he was frequently witnessed even after he was taken.2010 Asahi Shimbun interviewed the person in charge in each prefecture during the year of mass haunts of 16,000-26,000[32] It was thought to be the population of dozens of animals in addition to the largeOkayamaThere are many examples in which nearly half of the estimated number is captured, which suggests the magnitude of the error.
As the cause and factor of the abnormal haunting of bears in recent years, in the short-term (direct/nearest) factor, there is a large crop of nuts, and an increase in the area of ​​oak dying due to oak dying. Also, as long-term background, recovery/increase of population, change of Okuyama forest, maturation of expanded plantation and habitat shift,SatoyamaArea abandonment and habitat change, increase in attracting factors (OysterAbandoned fruit trees, abandonment of fruit trees, leftover food, garbage), decrease in hunters, appearance of new generation bears, etc.[33][34].. In addition to strongly instructing the removal of discarded fruit trees and trash from the administration, early removal of attracted fruit trees such as oysters, maintenance of a chasing system (fire bombs, roaring bullets), establishment of warning and capture systems (trap, Extermination corps) is an issue for future administration[35].. As mid-term response issues,Hazard mapAnd the designation of warning areas, training and lifting of bans (districts, free-ranging for a limited time), maintenance of satoyama, maintenance of corridor structure[35].. Also, to prevent entryElectric fenceIn some cases, non-lethal control methods such as the installation of shavings and the installation of materials to prevent bark peeling are introduced.again,KanagawaLet ’s take the captured black bearFirecracker,fireworks,Red peppersWe use a spray to instill the fear of people and then release it to the mountains.2019 By the time 28 were released this way, but only 3 of them were recaptured.[36].
