Lily the Black Bear and Her Cubs Welcoming Spring Near Ely, MN

It is a sure sign of spring when our local black bears become more and more active. This video shows some wild research bears and cubs near Ely, MN, this week. The North American Bear Center is studying them in their natural environment. This den cam gives us a great look at what is happening in the woods right now.

The Bears are soooo cute. They look like a fun group to play with...I wonder if my cat would enjoy them?

Very cool to see them like this! I'll have to show my girls this video. Not often, if ever, we see bears so candidly.
