Male Bear in hot pursuit

Inevitably, just a few minutes later, a male Brown Bear (Ursus arctos), considerably bigger and darker, walks through the same point,  hot on her tracks. During the mating season, males will follow any female scent they bump into. Females mate with several males each season in order to minimize the risk of infanticide attacks.

Inevitablemente, pocos minutos después el macho de Oso Pardo (Ursus arctos), mas grande y oscuro, pasa por el mismo punto, siguiendo el rastro de la hembra. Durante el celo los machos seguirán cualquier rastro de hembra con el que tropiecen. Las hembras se emparejan con varios machos para evitar el infanticidio.
