Black bears in Maine aren’t keen on people. That’s the explanation we don’t see too a lot of them out and about — at the very least not for lengthy.
That actuality doesn’t apply to path cameras, which will be arrange in bear territory and supply movies and pictures from a perspective we’d by no means have the ability to see if we had been simply strolling by the woods.
Fortunate for us, Allie Ladd of Byron takes appreciable pains to scout areas and place path cameras that give us all a behind-the-scenes take a look at the state’s stunning bruins.
This video is a compilation of bear footage that Ladd has collected in latest months. It begins with a hungry bear looking for meals again in March, when pickings are slim for the animals.
We then get a nighttime take a look at a sow and its small cub making their manner alongside a path searching for some snacks in July. The younger one, which seems tiny behind its mom, would have been born 5 – 6 months in the past, through the useless of winter.
That takes us to a scene on a hill the place a bigger grownup bear stands on its hind legs and rubs its again on a tree. The train solely lasts about 13 seconds, however it appears sufficient to get the job executed — whether or not scratching an itch or leaving scent on the tree.
Three days later, in the very same spot, a sow and its two cubs cross by. These bears don’t appear to note or have a necessity for the back-scratching tree.
Thanks once more to Allie Ladd for his work within the subject capturing wildlife movies and his generosity in sharing them with Bangor Each day Information readers!
