lol in some cases that could be true. And I know that more than a few people think bears are big angry monsters that only want to kill lol  :p lol but its just not the case to much Mike. The truth about this guy is he was orphaned by the MNR ( Minister of Natural Resources ) They trapped his mother and moved her leaving him on his own searching for her for a fair while. she was not a nuisance bear.. Only a bear that was within 10 km or so of a provincial park.

I spotted him while in this area and had a couple encounters. I'm sure she probably returned and retrieved her cub. They have returned many times from very long distances in the past. like 100's of km's or more



Pondrader...thank you for the interesting information about the cub and his mother. I enjoyed reading it. In the mountains above Fresno where I live, we've encountered black bears on quite a few occasions while fishing or hunting quail. None have ever been aggressive, and usually they are anxious leave the area where we are. I worry about mountain lions a lot more than I do black bears. My remark about, "Hi Mr. human.........etc." was nothing more than my dumb attempt at humor. :-)

The humour is ok with me Mike, I try at it myself. I'm sure most of the time people don't get me and my stupid jokes.. :oops: but I got yours;-)a

I have tons of stories with graphics.. just not sure people want to hear.
