The three ABR cubs are about as healthy as any black bear cubs can be.  In fact, they are undoubtedly more healthy and chubbier than other 2017 cubs who have been in the wild with their mothers for the past nine months.  Today’s photos testify to that fact.

As you can see, all three of the bears have sleek, shiny black fur covering their plump bodies.  They are “picture perfect” images of young bears.
