Skin a bear hide

The black bear is a medium sized bear with a body about six feet long and appears to weigh around 440 pounds.  Mostly blackish in color, asone would expect from a black bear, its muzzle is somewhat lighter and a distinct V-shaped patch of cream colored fur can be found on the chest.  Also of note are the ears which appear much larger than those of other bears.

In addition to a natural weapon charge attack, they also have a charge maneuver with the potential for unbalance critical damage.
