Can I Play Mum?

A year after he was weaned, Junior’s mum, Big Momma, returned to the Khutzeymateen with two new cubs – a male and a beautiful blonde female, later named Honey. For Junior his bewilderment at being left all on his own the previous spring continued the following year, especially now his mom had two new cubs. He just wanted to play I’m sure, but she wouldn’t have it and would chase him away. This too became a game for Junior who would push and push just to see how close he could get before his mum turned and chased him. His antics continued throughout the year and here we see the young grizzly bear in the fall, watching his mum and her new charges, just to see if he can get a few feet closer!
