All three of the cubs were in the same tree – surprise! It wasn’t the favorite or “Summitt’s tree.”  They chose a different tree and were stacked up in the branches, in the rain.  Looking at the size of those branches, Curator Tom wished they would go back to the sturdier branch they usually choose.

Three cubs in one tree, in the rain.


The branches look too small for their round bodies.

Otto and Rollo Bear don’t mind the rain.


Apollo Bear sits comfortably on a too-small branch of the tree.

It’s interesting that the bear cubs almost always scamper up a tree when the rain comes.  We would probably choose to enter one of the culvert dens, but not the cubs!  We just hope that they return to the bigger branch in the larger tree next time.
