Its not often that one gets to see a bear give birth, but this year, it might be possible to see the bear’s birth on a live webcam.
Thanks to A Minneapolis filmmaker, Doug Hajicek, one can spy on a hibernating wild bear through a video feed from a den near Ely.
In 1999, Hajicek had similarly set up a bear cam but that time no cubs were born. But this this time many researchers believe that there is much better chance that this year, Lilly the bear will give birth to 1 pound cubs around January mid.
Doug’s camera will transmit in color by day and produce infrared images during night time. There will be a motion sensor which will trigger video and sound transmission when there would be any activity, else it will send stills.
Earlier, the video feed of the bear’s birth was going to be available on the North American bear Center’s website, bear.org, but due to heavy traffic the site crashed. According to the Wildlife Research Institute now the bear’s den cam will be available on wildearth.tv.
The webcam installed outside the bear’s den will provide pictures and videos in real time for the world
The video of bear giving birth would be a must watch and not to be missed.
