Bears of Brainerd, continued
Brainerd's black bears and a family of three cubs, perhaps the same mother and cubs photographed in west Brainerd, were the subjects for longtime photographer David Boran as they moved through north Brainerd this past weekend.
The cubs climbed trees and scampered through the neighborhood that is on the edge of the Mississippi River bluff.
