You and Katy are correct, I believe.
This little bear got hungry and left it's den in search of food. A few days later the weather warmed up and the little fellow may have gotten wet in it's den. It was active again during the warming weather and always alone.
A bear this young should be with it's mother, full time.Haven't seen any sign of any larger bears . We'll hope for the best.
The little bear is very quiet and travels at night.That's a good thing in the bear world.

Amazing. I would also thing that it is usual for a bear to be out and about in winter. Perhaps it got hungry or could not sleep. I hope it survives the winter.
