Default Wanna see a black bear giving birth online?

If you listened to Prairie Home Companion this weekend you learned about this site, set up by scientist who are studying black bears: www.bear.org.
Right now, Jewels, a 3-year old female started labor, which is estimated to last until tomorrow. Have a look at the live cam:

She was quite active until about an hour or two ago, occasionally interrupting with a snooze.

She woke up and scratched a few minutes ago. She has been making low moans in her sleep too, or maybe that is a bear snore.
