Little Girl Feeding a Bear Cub

Today we feature a picture from Alaska, circa 1900. It shows a small girl feeding a bear cub. The cub appears to have a dog collar on, so perhaps it is a family pet. It looks like a mining camp in the background.

  1. More likely the cub was an orphan after the mother was shot, and was being used for entertainment. I don't imagine it lasted long.
