Another pic for Sasquatch or Black Bear? This time from Minnesota.

I don't always see why it's a question at all.  The pic in question is a black bear for sure.

The shiny jet black fur is the first clue.  The fore legs and hind legs bend at the right place. While at first glance it looks like the legs are straight, that's not the case. The left hind leg is bent toward us so it's not clearly a bend at the joint at first sight.

The tips of the ears are also visible over the foliage.
