NERVOUS CUB 1

NERVOUS CUB 1

By 5pm, we were in the hut, and not a minute too soon as the bears were approaching. They are fed off-cuts from a local fish factory to supplement their diet of berries which helps them to build up fat deposits for hibernation. There is a strict pecking order which makes smaller bears like this cub rather nervous.
