Bear Delivers 2 Cubs on Internet

Facebook

ELY  (AP) — A 3-year-old bear in Minnesota has given birth to two cubs before an Internet audience.

Lynn Rogers of the Wildlife Research Institute, affiliated with North American Bear Center, says Jewel gave birth in a den near Ely to the first cub at 7:22 a.m. Sunday, and a second at 8:40.

The births coincide with the Jan. 22 birthdate of Hope, the first bear Rogers and his colleagues recorded being born.

Three-year-old Jewel is the younger sister of Lily, who gave birth to Hope. Their 2010 birth and early days were followed by millions of viewers over the Internet. A hunter killed Hope last year.
