- Description: One day while driving to meet a friend I noticed a number of cars parked along both sides of the road. I wondered what was happening so I slowed down. A by stander pointed up in a tree. Here were two bear cubs perched high above the ground. As it turned out their mother has been hit and killed by a tractor trailer the night before. The cubs ran up this tree and would not come down. Eventually a ranger came, tranquilized the little guys and took them to a rehab center where they were cared for and eventually returned to the wild. This cub just seems to be crying out "Oh Mom, Why Did You Leave Me??" A very memorable photography experience!!
