Black Bears on the Moose road?

It's that time of year again. The hawthorne trees have ripened and several Black Bear families have descended on the Moose-Wilson road to vacuum feed on berries until it's time for the long winter nap. Bears are common this time of year on this road, so we were not surprised to see a bear but seeing a bear cub walk out of the woods, casually collect a road-killed chipmunk and return to the woods is not a common sight. There was no mother in sight, nor any siblings, just a young bear exploring the world and finding food alone, which is how it will spend most of its life. Of all the bears that I saw along that road this year I do believe this was the only bear that I saw eating meat. A great sighting that yielded great photos for guests thanks to the custom roof hatches on our Mercedes Sprinter.
