Although they are classified as carnivores, or meat-eaters, bears are really omnivores, like we are. They eat meats and plants. About 90% of the diet of the Eastern Black bear is plants such as: Leaves Flowers Grasses Mushrooms Berries Roots Other fruits Nuts, including acorns Honey Grubs Small mammals

Black bears are scavengers, they'll pretty much eat anything thats easy to catch, like berries, fruits, weak smaller animals, and garbage. Grizzly bears are predators and so they like anything with a pulse.
