A Day in the Life of Black Bears

Bears in Trees

Should I run up this tree?

Black bears seek refuge in trees from a young age. Their mothers will send them up trees for safekeeping while she forages.  They learn that it’s a safe place to rest and an excellent place to avoid other bears on the ground.  The more confident the bear, the less they seek the trees for safety.  Younger bears and less confident bears rely on the trees to stay out of harm’s way.

  1. Wow! You definitely are the bear whisperer, Sheila! So many fantastic bear pictures, with such meaningful expressions and looking almost like people as some stand upright on their 2 back legs. I know just how a few of them feel, especially the one tired of all the bugs and flies buzzing around him.

    Thanks for putting another smile on my face!

    1. I’m glad you can identify with the bears a little bit. We’re not so different when it gets down to basic needs and emotions.
      You can see where the Sasquatch legends come from now, can’t you!?!
