Black Bear cub in his safe place. Mother Black Bears "tree" their cubs to make sure they stay out of harm's way. Mom and cub had been eating berries when a huge male black bear decided to take their spot. Mom ran away, but the cub "treed" himself by climbing up a tree and staying put on one of the higher branches until the male black bear left the area. Vince Schute Wildlife Refuge, Orr, Minnesota.
