Black bear on Hwy 37

Saw this young black bear on Highway 37, It either just got booted from mom or lost it's mom. I suspect people having being feeding it. this is a bad idea which lead to having the bear hurt someone and getting killed. If it can find enough food then it stands a chance to survive the winter. Actually hanging out near the road might be a smart survival move as the road will keep the bigger bears away and it can avoid bear on bear conflicts. On this 3 day trip, saw 3 Grizzlies and 12 black bear.

Here is one of the Grizzlies
