I would find it so hard to tell which one was which, apart from Milton, I too would worry about him , and am always amazed that the little tree does not snap its branches under that huge weight. They almost seem to dance when marking. Cheers from Jean. p.s. lovely video, as always, I so enjoy them
I like how they pull a branch down onto their hear and shoulder. Wonderful video. And it does seem Milton's limp is much worse.Blessings,Goose
I love these bear marking videos. Thanks for sharing.Cindy
Like Goose, I love to see them pull the leafy branch down on their heads and shoulders. Does it make them seem bigger to the other bears??Jo, Stella and Zkhat
Must be layers of bear scent on that tree!XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
Awesome as always.I was thinking about your bears today when a friend texted me to say she saw a bear on a trail 30 km from our place.
That tree is like bear-nipSnorts,Benny & Lily
Wonderful footage. I was so glad to see MIlton. That seems like a lot of bears in one area. IS that normal?Bert adn My Vickie
Fabulous video of the bears! It's great to see you have such a large, healthy (apart from gimpy Milton) population. Thanks so much for sharing them. :-)Susan and Wrigs
All of the bears sure look happy about marking their trees!Love ya lots♥Mitch and Molly
It just about breaks my heart to see him limping so bad.. love watching these videos, thanks for sharing!
Wonderful video! Thanks so much. I keep meaning to ask -- I notice that all the bear marking trees seem to be broken off at about head height on the big males. Is there some reason for that? Any idea how it happens?
that was wonderful to see! so cool. so i take it that you have to go to your camera to collect the footage.... and if so you are most likely hyper alert each time?! i wonder how long that little tree can survive all this rubbing and pulling. amazing!
Incredible. You are so blessed to have access to such wonderful wildlife activity. You are creating such a legacy of behavior records!
