BEAR PRINT | REPRIMAND
Lake Clark, Alaska. This cub was an only child so mom spoiled him rotten. I had watched her play with the little one for a long time. She became exhausted and lay her head down to rest while the cub entertained himself. The cub got bored and wanted his mother's attention. He began biting her ears and jumped on her belly. I thought "what an amazing mother!". At that very moment, mother bear got up and let out a loud cry. The cub must have accidentally hurt her. I was so close I felt the ground shake, Playtime came to an immediate halt. Mother was angry, the cub looked as if he was about to cry.
Enough is enough.
