Sow and Triplets

Got a good set of pics of the sow and triplets visiting the set at the mountain pond. The cubs look like they're really growing. We started chopping the corn on my buddies farm this week and unfortunately they appear to be fatting up mostly on corn from the looks of all of the damage to the fields.

This bear family is looking good. I guess corn is good for bear. I didn't know they were destructive to farm fields. Great set of photos.

Hi Y'all,

The cubs are grown on the ridge behind the house. I haven't noticed any signs so far this year of "bear bottoms" sliding down the bank. The bear that lurked around the farm fields last year is also strangely absent, or at least there have been no markings.

Cubs are so cute when they're little. Cute as long as they can be safely observed from a camera, car or house without upsetting mamma bear.

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

I was surprised to see in one of the last pics, how muscular the mother is. We just saw a black bear yesterday in our lower yard. He/she was furrier and the fur was dull. It also had a little more fat. I've never seen a bear with muscles showing like that. But it does look healthy.

Great photos, Joe! We had a visiting bear last year that got into our corn. I think they'll eat just about anything.

I did not know that they like corn!

Those are some really cool pics. We have bears around us but I usually don't see many.
