The Yellow Bear (Ursus Poohranus) is a medium sized bear found in North America.

They have yellow fur, a narrow muzzle, large jaw hinges, and no tail. Their paws, unlike the American Black Bear, have no claws. Without claws on their paws, they are unable to climb trees and claw their predators. Instead, they use their narrow muzzle to ram into the face of their attackers. This action is called "the ampoohush". During the fall season when the forest bed is filled with leaves, the yellow bear would roll around instead of walking on all fours.

They occupy much of the forested regions in the Middle Eastern parts of the United States and the southern farmlands on the Canadian Border. They are found in areas with relatively thick forestation and understory vegetation. Their herbivore diets consist of mainly wild potatoes and berries, depending on the season and location. In one day, the yellow bear can eat up to 15 pounds of wild potatoes. Because of the amount of potatoes they eat, they fall into a food coma after every meal, lasting two hours each.

It is listed by the IUCN as a "threatened" species. This is due to their habitats being disturbed for agricultural and industrial purposes. With their natural habitats destroyed, they are pushed into the city. The city does not have the food sources necessary for the yellow bear to survive, causing their population to decline from 400 to 250 in 2015.
