One of 3 babies of the bear called 2 tags. This was taken in Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountain NP. For those of you that listen to police scanners the parks code for a bear is 3-5-0 usually followed by the word jam. I don’t know if this is unique to the Smokies or a common NP code.

    Great shot Gary! When were you there? I went up Friday and saw a bear Friday morning but couldn’t get a decent shot.
