I was so happy to see my two furry friends again! They always bring a huge smile to my face! Piglet looked very healthy! When I first found them, another bear came out of the forest near them.That spooked not only Peggy & Piglet but the other bear as well! They all went back into the forest to get away from each other!
I waited 15 minutes & they all came back out.Piglet had enough street sense to always be watching out for that other bear! She’d get up high on a rock to look around to make sure the coast was clear.(by this time that other bear had gone back into the forest)
So,Piglet has not only put on weight but is also street/forest wise!
Piglet has done well over the summer! She’s put on weight & hasn’t even gone to the salmon streams yet! Thats when they really put the pounds on! Bears eat like Kings each day around a salmon stream!
Piglet was curious about me tonight.She came closer to check me out. When I’m taking shots of bears I stay in my boat, close to shore.
I talked to her softly as she was leaving,so she came back a second time.A real sweetheart!
I now believe that this cub is Piglet #2.It’s the same mother but a smaller cub than she had last Fall.Which means Peggy must of not denned with Piglet last winter.This cub was born this year & so explains why it is so small.It even has a thin white chest marking like her older sister Piglet! Peggy also has a bad case of mange on her face.I almost didn’t recognize her.
