Came in the thread for this. While you still need to be careful and respectful around any creature that typically is double your weight and strength, Black bears are pretty gentle. My brother likes to tell a story that he was out at a picnic table and a black bear just came up and sat down to chill with his group of friends for lunch. In this video you could see the bear was just being nosy, and as unnerving as the entire experience must have been, is pretty much non confrontational the entire video.
