The Bear Thief is an anthropomorphic bear who lives somewhere around Mount Paozu. He wields a large scimitar and attacks passerby for food or valuables. He likes to eat turtles, prooved when he even appeared to eat Turtle.
The Bear Thief encountered Goku and Bulma early in their adventure to collect the Dragon Balls as they were escorting Master Roshi's Turtle back to the ocean. The Bear Thief intended to have Goku give up the turtle for him to eat it but Goku refused. This led to a confrontation between the two. Having not been able to even touch Goku, the Bear Thief was defeated with only one punch to his face.
