Ely, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - Black bear Lily continues to mother her new cubs, while still tending to Hope, as well.

Researchers are excited to witness the interactions of this rare ‘mixed-age litter’ and share them with the public through a den cam on www.bear.org. In this clip, we see unprecedented footage of an interaction between mother, yearling, and new cub. The new cub crawls onto yearling Hope's chest as Lily adjusts her position.
