Adorable: Black bear cubs found in DeKalb County

A total of 6 black bear cubs from 2 den sites were fitted with tracking collars this week in DeKalb County.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ala. — These little guys were found in DeKalb County - the six baby black bears were from two den sites. 

According the the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division, all the cubs appeared healthy and were being well taken care of by their mama bears. 

The organization says the mamas were temporarily spooked away while the cubs were collared, weighed, and microchipped. Both mamas returned to their respective cubs after scientists were done. The collars are stretchable and flexible and will eventually fall off. 

One litter of cubs had two girls, and the other litter had four boys.
