who often called us "wee bastards".



We probably deserved it....

18. Good forage, wherever she's at..

Litter size in black bears is sometimes proportional to food supply, particularly in the fall. 2 to 3 cubs is normal. 4 to 5 isn't too unusual if there's good mast in the fall. I think 6 is the record observed by humans, if I recall.

20. Thanks! I suspected that, knowing deer do the same.

Once spotted a doe with three fawns, which I believe is pretty uncommon. But I then read it was happening more often that year.

I am sitting here wanting to help her.

19. Being a mother is never easy.

A few years back, a group of us were in Shenandoah and took the NPS van down to Hoover Camp. On the way we saw a black bear with four cubs. We stopped and watch for a long while. If you are ever in Shenandoah, that's a must see, even if you don't see a bear with four cubs. You can hike down and back up too.
