I just got back from a wonderful 5 days in Shenandoah National Park and ended up seeing a lot of my Black Bear friends. Bear activity is very high in SNP country so far this year, so please be careful , drive slow, keep your distance and secure your food and trash!
Cub mortality seems higher this year than in previous years. More than half the moms that I have seen with cubs this year have lost at least one of their cubs. I first found these guys in late April and saw them several times in May. I saw them for my first time in June this week and sometime since Memorial Day Weekend they have lost their third sibling :(
I hope that these two survivors will live long, healthy lives...
