What a cute little bear cub. He’s so small!
Yes, a very, very, young one. They are sooo adorable, but his mom is another story. I stayed well out of her way in the truck.
Quite a photo. How often do you see bears?
At this time of year in particular, we see many, many of them. I was travelling with a Dene elder who spotted the little cub, otherwise I likely wouldn’t have noticed.
And you were safe inside the truck, right? The cub is a cutie. Mom’s and cubs scare me, especially if I am between them. Happy Monday.
Thanks, Allan. Oh yes, this photo occurred from the safety of the truck. She (or he) was well camouflaged; I at first didn’t see her. We saw the mom foraging on the side of the road and stopped to take pictures, and the elder I was driving with saw the little cub, but we never left the vehicle.
What a great story.
Right? This little cub wasn’t much bigger than a four or five month-old baby. Sooo cute!
There’s an entire story right there, hanging in that tree, eyes big and observant.
That’s very true! His (or her) mom was very close by looking for food; she left her baby in the tree for safety.
They are absolutely adorable, and this one was the size of a four or five month-old baby.
I love how mother black bears park their babies at some absurd height in a tree. They seem to have total faith that dangling 20 feet above the ground is safer than being on it!
That’s so true. This little one was quite far up there hanging on for dear life while his mom poked around underneath the tree. The cub was also quite hard to spot, so he (or she) was out of reach and well camouflaged!
They really are cute. Good thing you weren’t out walking nearby.
This little one was so cute. Agreed. We were safely in a vehicle, but yes, getting near this mom would have been dangerous.
Even the little guys – I heard one fellow describe it like picking up a running chainsaw (claws). (That one was probably an orphaned cub).
Even the little ones have to come into the world well-equipped to defend themselves. I visited a cub sanctuary years ago where there were very, very little ones. The volunteers were cradling them, but their feet were wrapped up! The cubs were so happy to be warm and fed and comfortable and quickly fell asleep.
They really look so sweet. Little teddy bears.
Yes, so true. They grow up to be ferocious, but when they’re little they’re so cute.
