Web cam allows peek at MN hibernating bears

February 6, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
New Web cam footage is revealing a bit more about a bear cub and its family while they hibernate in Minnesota.

Mother bear Lily gave birth to two cubs in Ely, Minn. in January.

The video shows one of the cubs hanging onto the head of its big sister, Hope while she and mother bear Lily were sleeping.

The Web cam was originally placed in Lily's den in 2010 as part of a research experiment into the behavior of bears during hibernation.
