Once in a Lifetime 255 "Ready! Catch-as -catch-can and No Holds Barred" Little bowlegged Blackie and bigger, equally bowlegged Brownie square off for a scuffle. Wrestling matches were only one of many pastimes for Sequoia's bear quadruplets. By midsummer the cubs had learned to steal sugar pine cones from the squirrels, who were busily harvesting them. The youngsters also liked to dig bulbs and sweet roots, and eat tender grasses in the meadows. By autumn millions of ants and other insects, big acorns, and late berries fattened the quartet and made their fur luxuriant.
