Photo By Bob Faucher
“My daughter and I attended a polar bear tour out of Churchill, Manitoba,” explains Bob Faucher. “Our group rented one of the famous Tundra Buggies on this day. Around midday, we spotted this mother and her cubs foraging on the tundra. The mother caught the scent of food wafting out the open windows of our buggy and cautiously approached. She then allowed the cubs to approach the buggy. When it became clear that they weren’t going to be fed—it’s strictly forbidden to feed the bears—she began to escort the cubs away.
“Their exit path crossed over the foreground berm, and there they settled down. Occasionally, they’d peek up to keep an eye on us. They most frequently peeked up individually or sometimes in pairs, so it took a little patience to get them all. Eventually, their curiosity was satisfied, and the family resumed their wanderings across the snow and ice.”
