Ferra, a plagued bear.

A very common, bulky, furry, four-legged beast that lopes along on all fours, but may occasionally rise up on hind legs. Most bears are hostile when approached, despite their sometimes cuddly appearance. They tend to be larger than human sized at their smallest. Bears are found in Dun Morogh, Loch Modan, the Hillsbrad Foothills, Ashenvale, Feralas, the Western Plaguelands, Darkshore, Elwynn Forest, Silverpine Forest, Bloodmyst Isle, and Winterspring.

There are varieties of "plagued" bears that roam Felwood and the Western Plaguelands.
