A tiger could definitely have a chance to kill a black bear by bringing it down with its great hunting skills with not much injuries. Let's compare their weights first. Asian Black bears, like asiatic black bears, weigh from 400-880 pounds, while bengal tigers weigh from 570-620 pounds. It seems that the two creatures can be quite heavier than each other. Depending on the health and experiences of the two creatures, these two creatures would normally stay out of each other's territories. A large male sloth bear or a large male asiatic black bear can stand a chance against a bengal tiger since male black bears are seeming to kill tigers in their territories. Tigers usually can kill sloth bears and sometimes asiatic black bears in Asia, but not really grizzly bears. Siberian tigers, which weigh from 660- 700 pounds, are stronger and larger than russian black bears. Really huge black bears weigh around 800-880 pounds. They might defeat a siberian tiger. Against a brown bear, the siberian tiger might have a decent chance of winning. Overall tigers can kill black bears, but black bears can also kill tigers too.

Answer 2

A tiger could sometimes kill a black bear, take its territory, and eat it. Tigers sometimes attack asiatic black bears and sun bears for territories. Black bears sometimes attack tigers for territories or food as well.

Only in extreme circumstances would a tiger or the lion would attack the black bear. A tiger or a lion is both capable of killing a black bear, but it would take a long time to do so.

Can a large black bear kill a tiger?

Large Asiatic black bears have been known to chase bengal tigers and dholes away from their kills. Asiatic black bears are very aggressive towards people, and they are so aggressive that they would be able to defeat and overwhelm a bengal tiger. Usually, with the bengal tiger being larger than the asiatic black bear by 100 lbs, the bengal tiger would also be able to kill the asiatic black bear as well. With the larger siberian tiger, the asiatic black bear would be an easy prey for it. If you are talking about the larger american black bear, then the collision becomes in slightly more favor of the black bear.

Can a black bear kill a brown bear?

It really depends. A Siberian tiger is quite a bit larger than a black bear, and just as an adept hunter (probably better) as a black bear. Black bears are quite aggressive themselves, with the fact that they have to defend territories (males) or cubs (females) against other predators like other black bears, grizzlies, cougars, wolves and coyotes. And even humans. However, such a fight can only be imagined because in reality, black bears and Siberian tigers never have nor will meet in the wild. So, in letting my imagination run wild, I would say that no, a black bear could not kill a Siberian tiger because the tiger is much larger and probably more fiercer than the bear, which gives it an added advantage in "defending" itself against such a bear.

Is a black bear bigger than a tiger?

That all depends on the species and sex of either species. For instance, a Siberian tiger may weigh a bit more than an American black bear and an Asian black bear, but a Sumatran and Bengal tiger may weigh about the same or equal to a male American black bear.
