The sow and her cubs are denned up under someone's deck

The Pennsylvania Game Commission has launched a new 24-hour livestream of a black bear den in Pike County.

According to, viewers get a up-close look inside a black bear den, which happens to be under someone's deck. Although the sow and her cubs are mostly sleeping, you can occassionally see them move about and interact with one another.

While all of our wildlife livestreams are popular with viewers, there's 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, said Steve Smith, the agency's Information and Education director.

Usually born in January, Pennsylvania's black bears typically begin walking at about 8 weeks old and they leave the den at 3 months of age.

The commission says the bears left the den on April 11 during the 2019 livestream and on March 24 during the 2021 livestream.
