Tiny Black Bear Cub, Part of the Dickert Wildlife Collection at Saranac Lake Free Library

Charles Dickert Wildlife Collection at the Saranac Lake Free Library.
This tiny bear cub, the smallest of the cubs in a grouping of taxidermy black bears, has the sweetest look. The Dickert Collection is a haunting and beautiful, extensive collection of mammals and birds from the Adirondacks and elsewhere. The collection resides in a fine large room in the basement, built for the collection by library benefactor Edmond Guggenheim.  Highly recommended.
