Came across “Orphan Annie” today. I was following another bear (Maple) when I noticed that it had noticed something up ahead that made it freeze in it’s tracks! I looked ahead & saw little “Orphan Annie” out on a gravelled beach totally unaware that we both were watching it! “Maple” being a good female bear didn’t want to disturb the little one & decided to go into the bush & go around,but made noise while doing so & spooked Annie who then made a bee line into the bush to hide!
I have no idea what happened to “Orphan Annie’s” mother? She obviously had to of been killed.Either by another bear or by a hunter?
