Fun Friday: Got Milk?

Today’s “Fun Friday” post … an intimate moment with a Brown Bear sow and her cub:

When the little one’s hungry, it’s time to be fed … even if you were busy clamming on the tidal flat! Did you know that bear cubs will “purr” when nursing? I was totally amazed the first time I saw a sow nursing her cubs.
