They’re Cubs but Not from the Windy City!
They look cute and cuddly, and they ARE hungry, but do NOT be tempted to toss them food, even if they form a road block. These are Ontario Black Bears, and they have some trouble distinguishing between the food and the hands that feed them.
The lateness of Spring’s arrival has them lined up on Highway 527 North. Until the berries and brush fill in, they are classic pan handlers. If you are in camp, NEVER NEVER tempt them to visit for left-overs. They have bad manners, bad breath, very good memories, and like California’s Governor:
“They’ll Be Bach!”
