From yesterdays post a concern between mother and offspring.  Family ties are strong while mother and cub are together for their first two years. It is not hard to see the family genetic in play with the colouration of these two blond-headed bears.  The size difference between mother and cub mean that this will be the last year for this cub to spend with mother. It will soon be on it’s own and it will be necessary to fight for a fishing spot on the river.
