About an hour after the first reported sighting of a mother bear and three cubs in Fieldale yesterday (see previous posts), the family was spotted again in Stanleytown. The mother bear is seen at right peeking out over the hill side to make sure that it is safe for her babies.
When the coast is clear the mother leads her cubs across the field to where ever they are going. Perhaps they were off to the Smith River for some yummy trout and riverside berries!
Thanks to everyone who has been contributing these cool shots!
