Photo: Bear family outing

  • Michael Scott of Royalston snapped this photo of a bear and two cubs on Athol-Richmond Road in Royalston on July 5. Scott said, “My wife, Dadgie, and I saw a bear cub cross the road in front of us, and as we slowed we noticed the mama bear over by the tree in the front yard of this house (just down the road from us). We sat and watched while I took photos, then the second cub came dashing across the street behind us to join them. Looked like they were having a great time but not practicing social distancing.” Photo/Michael Scott
