Is It Safe To Come Out and Play?
Black bears cubs will be exiting their dens soon to explore a new world (about mid-April in Summit County, Colorado). Sows give birth in the January/February time frame while in their den during hibernation. Cubs can journey out of the den in 8-10 weeks with their mother to learn about foraging, climbing trees, and hunting for small animals. Be on the lookout for bears over the next few months. Be respectful and keep a safe distance from any bear families.
