Description: I was in the observation blind and watching behaviors of a black bear family. A mother black bear appeared and she had two cubs. The mother bear was very nervous against male black bears and brown bears that sometimes kill cubs. Although these bears usually stay the riverside the mother had to catch salmon by herself to feed her youngsters.
