Do all species of bear keep their cubs around for a while?

    It would appear so. Brown bear cubs generally stay with their mother for two full seasons, nursing less as they learn how to hunt. Generally, bear cubs of all species will stick around for around three years. After three years, the mother will generally enter her next phase of heat, in which she will breed again. When she enters heat, she will drive off the old litter of cubs. Often, male bears will kill old litters of cubs so that they will not compete with their new litter.

    Since bears are mammals and the cubs need to feed on the mother’s breast milk the mothers will keep the cubs around for some time.  Accordign to the American Bear Association black bears keep their cubs for about 1.5 years.  Find other bear facts here
