Talk about a cliff hanger! Think this black bear mom and cub will survive their perilous climb?
It looks like this black bear mom and cub have found themselves in a bit of a scary situation. Known for being adept at climbing trees, black bears and sheer rock cliffs don't often get paired together. It's anyone's guess how they ended up in this predicament, but there's only one way out of it - and that's up.
As you'll see, Mom leads the way. Fingers crossed the little one is paying careful attention.
Success! There were a few scary moments when Junior appeared to be unsure and clinging helplessly on, but determination (and a bit of good luck) got him safely to the top.
Not too often you see black bears climbing rock cliffs. I guess there's a good reason for that.
