Yep I have seen cubs up some fifty feet in white pines.

Bears also climb bear stands.

As far as what the scat is..I don't know but the scale suggests big dog.

This last weekend on Lake Superior folks were wigged out about a paw print that was some five inches across. They were convinced it was bear.

But it had only four toes. Ergo possibly Newfie.
