Grizzly Bear Mother after Nursing
A grizzly bear mother shares a tender moment with her cubs right after nursing. Cubs tend to get very sleepy after nursing. Sitka, the female cub, climbed on mom’s back before they all settled down into the sand for a long nap. This mother walked up to where we were sitting, dug a small day bed, and nursed her cubs. We were able to sit with her while she nursed, and during her nap.
