Black Bear Siblings Getting Rough with Each Other
Bears learn from observation and experimentation, with Mother Black Bears providing plenty of opportunity for observation. Black Bear Cubs separate from their Mother during their second or third Spring. We suspect these are Siblings as there is a larger Bear they also interacted with, now sleeping very near by. While Bear Families usually remain tolerant of each other, exhibiting behavior like this is typical as they get older and are ready to create their own territories if possible.
