Don't you dare use your flash!

Two young brown bear cubs were rescued and taken to the Fortress of the Bears at the old Alaska Pulp Company site seven miles from downtown Sitka. The cubs' mother was shot because she began raiding garbage cans and her cubs would very likely have become victims of older male bears without the protection of their mother. A handicap-access ramp at the site leads to a bear-viewing platform allowing a close-up view of these soon to be one-half ton carnivores.
