During my visit at Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, I had an opportunity to see a very tender moment. Mama had moved on expecting her two cubs to follow but this little one lagged behind. Mama dutifully returned to urge her laggard cub to follow her. However, as far as the laggard cub was concerned, it was playtime not departure time! Mama patiently indulged in a little playtime before asserting her discipline.
