A mama Kodiak bear was seen leading four cubs through the Frazer Fish Pass in Alaska.
A pair of bear cubs is right on target. Three is great and not that unusual, but four cubs with one mother is pretty rare.
Watch and see if you think that they are all from one season with the same mama. One thing is for sure- it’s an awesome sight.
Thanks to the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge Facebook page for sharing such an amazing video!
The Refuge said that they had noticed one cub was likely a runt while one seemed to be bigger and stronger. A possible explanation, they said, was the bigger cub had learned to fish for itself and started to grow faster while it’s also possible that one cub was adopted.
Whatever the case, when wildlife can thrive like this it’s a good sign of a healthy ecosystem.
