Bear Cub in Ocala National Forest

A bear cub, one of two, cries out in its den hidden in a big thorn thicket in the Ocala National Forest, Wednesday March 29, as a University of Florida graduate student scares away the mother and moves in to remove the cubs for examination. Cubs are weighed, measured, sexed and have blood and hair samples taken and teeth counted. They are returned to the den and their mother in just over a half hour.
