American Black Bear (Ursus americanus)


TEXAS: Brewster Co; Big Bend National Park, Chisos Basin - October 2014



WYOMING: Park Co; Yellowstone National Park, Holson Valley - July 2013

We watched this sow and cubs walk down the road towards us in Florida.  It took her a while to figure out what the truck was, as she kept standing up to look at us.  Eventually, caution won out, and she took her cubs into the swamps.




FLORIDA: Franklin Co; Tate's Hell State Forest - June 2009

Another Sow with cubs, my camera was in the truck bed in its case when these guys ran across the road in Oklahoma.

OKLAHOMA: LeFlore Co; Rich Mountain - June 2007
