People around the world watched online as two Minnesota bear cubs were born in late January to the famous black bear Lily. Sadly, now, less than three months later, one of her cubs, Jason, has died.
The Department of Natural Resources decided Monday that radio-collared bears will continue to be fair game to hunters this fall. Now, a Minnesota bear researcher says the DNR is exposing his life’s work to unnecessary risk.

The most famous bear cub on the planet is missing again in the woods near Ely and researchers have given up hope of reuniting the cub with its mother.
Researchers say Hope the bear cub is doing much better after recently being unable to nurse because her mother’s milk had dried up after the two were separated for five days.
