Startled bear cubs

Startled bear cubs

In the open meadows of the Finnish-Russian borderland, the bear cubs remained alert to male adults encroaching and the 'fearsome' behaviour which accompanied this. The males are looking for mates amongst the female adults, but need to dispatch of the cubs first and thus provide a need for the females to breed again. This places the cubs in danger.
