Nature Photo of the Week: Black Bear Cubs

They look like toys, but these little cubs are definitely real! Flick user paddler60 captured this great shot at Minnesota’s Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary, operated by the Amercan Bear Association and a good place to see black bears in the wild. Thanks for sharing it through The Nature Conservancy’s Flickr Group!
