When you’re small, you have to stand tall

In a field at Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, a young black bear cub has to stand tall next to his mother to see what is going on in the world around them.

Black bears give birth every two years, usually having two to three cubs, however giving birth to four to five cubs happens on occasion.

Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge is one of nine national wildlife refuges in the Coastal North Carolina National Wildlife Refuges Complex. Email alligator_river@fws.gov for information about all refuges in eastern North Carolina.
