The present research was conducted to know about its population and human-bear conflict (n=120) in the Palas valley, Kohistan, Pakistan during May-July 2010. During the survey, 3 black bears were seen directly at 2 places, fecal materials were collected at 5 places and footprints were found at 6 places. 12 people incidentally sighted it. It is common in its population was increasing (66.7%) and became the highest during June-August (47.5%). The biggest problem of livestock of people was predation by U. thibetanus (60%).
