Black bear on the beach without cub

Black bear nursing mother

This black bear mother was spotted on the way to our day’s whale watching tour. It is a good area to find black bears especially if there is a low tide in the morning. This nursing mother (look closely at the photo) was on the beach alone that means she must have left her cub sleeping in the bush the above high water mark. We know she has one cub because we had seen them in this area on the previous day.
