She did scratch her collar off ... I thought it looked torn when I was watching her the other night.  They tried to get it yesterday but Lily was laying on it.   lollol

Lynn Rogers and I are watching with interest and waiting like everyone else. Hope sure complicates things, doesn’t she? We don’t see any definite signs of labor yet, but her increased activity level is of interest. The wait is on. -- SM

Has labor begun?  We think so.  At 5:08 PM, Lily began clenching her teeth.  That was what signaled the beginning of labor last year.  Hope’s birth came a little over 22 hours later.  That would put the birth(s) tomorrow—January 21.  The forecast tonight is for wind and temperatures down to minus 40.  The den is no warmer than outside.  The piece of vegetation dangling in front of the camera

I watched for a bit this afternoon..Lily looked so sleepy.
Hope is just so precious when she keeps peeking up to see her mom.
Wonder what she'll do when the new cub comes.
Love these two!
It's amazing to see that there are thousands following these guys.

Wow that's going to be wicked cold.

Sas..Me, this is going to be an educational experience!  I've no idea how it works when new cubs come along and there's still a yearling in the den.  Agree, it's bitter cold there tonight.

American black bears normally give birth every 2 years, but Lily was seen with males during last spring's mating season and is likely pregnant. If she gives birth in mid-late January, we will have the rare opportunity of observing a mixed age litter - new cubs and a yearling from last year's litter. How will Hope react to new cubs?

I hope that Hope isn't wearing her out ... she needs her strength!  I keep hearing Hope whining, wanting to suckle. 

I found this interesting though ... posted on their Facebook page ...

What timing!  Today’s full moon was the start of the Bear Moon when black bears give birth.  Brother bear is prominent in Native American culture as evidenced in part by their naming a moon for the bears.  Native American folklore also holds that snowfall during the Bear Moon means cubs have been born and the mother is calling for snow to wash them.  Snow is in the forecast.

Currently there are 8560 viewers!!!  WE is going to get overloaded and crash!   shock
