April 2, 2012 at 9:33am, Lugnut and her two cubs left the den site after a long hibernation. When we went to retrieve all of the equipment we discovered that the bears had chewed on the infrared light and disabled it, along with a box containing additional equipment. We are looking forward to the next bear den project and providing you with a close up look at a Wild Black Bear during their hibernation. The Wildlife Research Foundation is a privately funded organization. We desperately need your financial support in order to keep the cameras running. Please Donate Now. Every donation helps.
