While it is unknown if large populations of unmutated bears still exist in the wasteland, several mutated species have come to roam the wastes following the war. Bears typically inhabited forested areas of North America, but occasionally transitioned into grassy plain, alpine and tundra regions.
Depending on species, bears stand between six and eight feet tall and weigh several hundred pounds. Despite their large size, they are capable of traveling at impressive speeds. Coupled with their great strength, bears are able hunters. They have an omnivorous diet, ranging from large game and fish to berries and roots. They are naturally territorial creatures and often compete with other bears for their territory. Their territory serves as hunting grounds and contains their den for shelter and winter hibernation.
The only mutated bears actually seen in the Fallout universe, known as yao guai, appear throughout the Capital Wasteland in Fallout 3, Zion Canyon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts, and The Commonwealth in Fallout 4.
The mono-headed bear has not appeared in any Fallout games, but can be seen on the seal of the New California Republic that appears in Fallout 2.

Bears, or the Capital Wasteland's equivalent, anyway.
You're not going to find one of these babies balancing on a big rubber ball, though, I can tell you that much. They're are vicious as they come -- razor sharp claws, razor sharp teeth. Nasty, nasty temperament."
