I watched as this Wild Black Bear Sow walked into the woods with her two cubs and disappeared from sight. An hour later she hadn't come back out and I went to the edge of the trees to check on her and saw her resting under a large tree with her cubs playing behind her. At that moment she got up and slowly walked towards me to a fallen tree and sat down hanging her legs over it. I couldn't believe my luck. Imagine how I felt when a short time later one of her cubs decided to join her and copy her every move!
