This live video feed is the result of a partnership between Pennsylvania Game Commission and HDOnTap for educational purposes,
Join us in celebrating Pennsylvania’s bountiful black bears.
This live stream from Pike County is brought to you by the Pennsylvania Game Commission and HDOnTap.
As we move through March, the cubs will become more visible and active; early in the month, we may see the sow’s back much of the time. Black bears are wild creatures and it is important for us to keep them wild.
Please refrain from naming the sow and her cubs to respect them as wild animals. Also respect the privacy of the bears and the landowners, to whom we are extremely grateful for their enthusiastic cooperation in allowing us to share this peek into the lives of black bears.
Learn more about Pennsylvania black bears at Pennsylvania Game Commission's website. Enjoy!
And remember, nature can be difficult to watch.
