These three spring Black Bear (Ursus americanus) cubs spent over an hour cuddled high up in the crook of the tree (about 80 feet above ground!), napping. They all woke up a few minutes before this image was taken. Seems chill and calm, right? Well it was, for about three minutes. Then all hell broke loose when the brown colored cub on the lower right decided that it wanted to be on top. Much pushing, shoving and biting followed. Even the cub on the far left couldn't stay out of it. That cub got bit on the butt and the feet by both of the others but it didn't budge. Amazing that no one fell out of the tree. Northern Minnesota.
