Lily The Bear Is In Labor
The Bear that has captured the worlds attention with her own web cam, Lily is LIVE again and as of Friday afternoon she was in labor again, check out the live cam here.
Lily, a 4-year-old wild American black bear, is part of the long-term study of black bear ecology and behavior being conducted by biologist Lynn Rogers of the Wildlife Research Institute near Ely, Minnesota. Lily made Internet history when a camera was placed in her den and the birth of her lone female cub, Hope, was broadcast live to 25,000 viewers on January 22, 2010. Hearts melted as Hope's tiny paw reached out to touch Lily's nose just after the birth. Lily and Hope became ambassadors for bears worldwide.
