I do not know this bear and obviously she does not know me. She folded her ears back and sniffed at the air. She wanted to know what I was? Bears are fearful at this stage. I gently talked to her which seemed to calm her down.


I’m pretty sure this is a 3 year old Piglet all grown up.  Not only does she have the identical chest mark but she also recognized me! She didn’t run away and allowed me to get within 15 feet. I always talked to her. I think the voice helped her remember.

She is doing really well and It was so good to see my little friend all grown up! One thing I did notice is that she had been swiped by another bear in a fight. Bears always swipe at the eyes. She has a small scar under her right eye.
