The Pennsylvania Game Commission has started streaming a black bear den in Pike County 24/7.
The commission hasn’t given viewers such a detailed glimpse inside a black bear den since 2021. Black bears do indeed den annually, according to the commission, but rarely do they choose well-documented den sites.
I was fortunate enough to have the chance arise this year.

Bear cubs are a particular favourite of the agency’s viewers, according to Steve Smith, the director of information and education.
“While all of our wildlife livestreams are popular with viewers, there is nothing like watching and listening to bear cubs as they begin to explore their surroundings and, ultimately, emerge from the den with their mothers to see their new world in Penn’s Woods,” he added.
Newborn black bears in Pennsylvania normally make their first steps during the eighth week after birth (about in January). At the age of three months, they are ready to venture out of the den.
The commission reports that in 2019, the black bears departed the den on April 11, and in 2021, they will leave on March 24.
There will be a total of four livestreams from the commission between now and spring, counting the bear den livestream.
