Rasta's cub meets unfortunate accident

cub2Some sad news on the bear front. A few weeks ago, Rasta bear and her two cubs (one black, one brown) came down from the Lakes Basin in search of food. During their escapade, a car hit the 8-month-old, black, female cub and Steve was forced to put her down. The family was popular in the Lakes Basin this summer and kept out of trouble. With that in mind, let’s focus on what a great example of coexistence the little bear was during her time here.

My comment is that we share the earth with other living things such as animals. We should be careful while driving up in Mammoth and watch for a possible tradgedy. We go to a cabin every year in Mammoth and love the animals. It's up to us to keep the bears from harm. Shame on the person who didn't watch out for the baby cub!

It really makes me mad that people run over and kill bears! Can't they be careful when they are driving and watch for wild animals? I hope they are shammed into realizing we share this earth with animals.
