A Mother’s Work . . .
The black bear is North America’s smallest and most common species of bear.
There are an estimated 500-600 black bears inhabiting Yellowstone National Park. Black bears are not all black; their coats can be cinnamon, blonde, brown, or black. Adult males weigh between 200 and 600 pounds while females weigh between 150-400 pounds. They give birth in January to anywhere from 1-4 cubs. The cubs stay with their mother for about 2 years.
I watched this sow with her cub-of-the-year for over an hour on Blacktail Plateau in Yellowstone. The cub ran, climbed, jumped, and ran some more while mom patiently stood by. She eventually settled down against a tree, facing me, and nursed her cub. It was an incredible event to witness. Hope you enjoy the photo.
