I took some friends out on a boat tour today. We had to leave much earlier than normal. I like to leave three hours before sunset as a standard rule,the light is far warmer near sunset.
This is Peggy and Piglet foraging along the shore. Piglet got spooked and ran away at one point. Which in turn made Peggy nervous! She stood up to look around for the danger!
After being satisfied that there was no danger,they both settled down.
Peggy has a new cub this year,so I’m calling it Piglet III. Its her third cub. I do not know the sex but suspect another female? She was being shy. She was using Peggy’s body as a shield. She eventually came out from behind mum and than she promptly walked into the forest without saying so much as a polite goodbye. Such a short debut!
Such a little darling!
I was so happy to find my friend Peggy! I haven’t seen her in what seems oh so long! She had a new cub this year as well! Of course it was shy,but Peggy just kept eating away merrily!
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!
