Black Bear Cub Safety Yellowstone National Park

A Black Bear cub in Yellowstone National Park is in its safety zone while its mother is away. The tops of trees are considered to be one of the best places for the cubs as they climb to heights unreachable by any predators.

Safety is a main concern for a mother Black Bear protecting her cub and while she is off feeding, she will send her cub up a tree to avoid any danger. Tree climbing is one of the first things a Black Bear cub will perfect and this one in Yellowstone National Park looks a little worried while checking out the photographer.

People should be aware that the mother is not far away, meaning a possible encounter with a protective mother which could be extremely dangerous. She will always find safety for her cub until it is approximately 17 months of age. Up to this time, the adult has taught her cub as much as she can about surviving in the wilderness of Yellowstone National Park hoping the Black Bear has matured enough to practice these life long skills.

Yellowstone National Park is home to about 500-600 Black Bears and when this cub is fully grown it will weigh between 150 and 600 pounds depending on its sex. The most common areas to see a Black Bear in Yellowstone National Park is around the Tower area, in the Blacktail plateau between Tower and Mammoth Hot Springs and in the Lamar Valley.
