Wildlife

on 05 June 2009

Last night around 7 we got a real treat. We saw a bear from a distance
and as we got closer we saw that she had her 3 cubs with her. They
were climbing a tree as we walked by. We definitely got lucky! Today
we'll be leaving the park and hopefully get better weather soon.

This is awesome Chad! Have they been getting into people's foodbags at night?

I love the look of the lowest bear cub. It looks like it's looking around looking at you guys as much as you're looking at them!

And, yes, how did Lucy like them? Did she smell them?

Mr. DeVoe said...

Well, Lucy had to be on her lease throughout Shenandoah National Park. Therefore she didn't really react to the bears. If she were off her lease I bet it would have been a different story. Maybe that's why they require the leashes here...

Mr. DeVoe said...

Yeah, 3 cubs is a lot. I think that's the max per female in one year.
