somebody's not aware of their body mass vs. branch size they're standing on. Did he fall??
He was going from tree to tree, and went up and down in expert style, never even slipped.
He was a smaller bear, so I dont think he was stressing the tree much.
Thanks for the comment, and the vote! :)
Edit to say that I watched a sow grizzly and her 2 cubs on the slope directly behind this tree in June of 07, that was really something, my pictures did not come out very well though.
