Black Bear Cub

This is a Black Bear cub (yes, I know it's brown) that I saw in the high desert of Northern California. This guy was hustling to keep up with Mom and made for quite the photography challenge. A number of people stopped and tried to get pictures with their cell phone cameras. For a minute, I thought I was getting something for having missed my "Alligator Eating A Little Kid" photo, but sadly, I failed to get my "Mother Bear Eating A Dummy With A Cell Phone Camera" picture.

 

Sigh, maybe next year.

 

By the way, Mom had a large yellow tag in her right ear (I THINK the number was 415). If anyone knows how to find out more about this or where to report it, I'd appreciate it.
