Will you be my mommy?

These photos were taken by my next-door-neighbor, Aileen, on Monday. They were too cute not to share!  She said this tiny cub was hanging out on her deck for about a half an hour. No mother was around, so it looks like it’s an abandoned cub. It seems to be wondering if their wooden bear might be a good surrogate. It looks kind of right, but it sure doesn’t smell right!

The sad thing is it might be one of the three cubs that were left to fend on their own when their mother was euthanized about a month ago. (The rogue bear that knocked down a man and swiped at his dog in Jungle Habitat.) It looks about the right size because they were “about the size of a Pomeranian” when their mother was killed.

I haven’t seen it around my yard ... yet, but I’ll be keeping a close eye out for the dear little thing.

aww, he’s so cute! poor little guy.  Hopefully maybe they can trap him and take him somwhere where he can be put with other cubs and another mama bear.

OMG… too cute. 

My first thought was to wonder if he/she was one of the orphans…. poor baby.  I’d be sending that picture into the local paper as protest!

He’s beautiful.  Hope he’ll be ok.

Oh, my he’s cute! He looks lost and confused, though.

Will this wee bear be able to survive on his own or is he too young to fend for himself?  He is absolutely gorgeous.

Joyce, I doubt he’ll be able to survive on his own. Yes, he is way too young to fend for himself. When they euthanized the mother bear they said they left the cubs alone to “let nature take its course.” In other words, they heartlessly left them to die. So sad.
