Ursus americanus californiensis
This cinnamon colored Black Bear cub was running across a field and went into a wooded area. It briefly climbed a tree before climbing back down. The mother was not seen (which was concerning) but the cub kept looking back towards another wooded area. Black bears can have a variation of coloring depending on the subspecies from white to cinnamon to silver to black. Black bears are the only bear in California.
