The Internet famous black bear gives birth to two more cubs.

The Wildlife Research Institute in Ely, Minnesota, has announced that Lily the black bear gave birth to two more cubs on Saturday, January 2012. The Lily Den Cam captured the black bear when she rolled onto her back shortly before 1:00 a.m. and pushed out two cubs in full view of the camera.

“Lily was restless Friday evening and surprised us by giving birth a week earlier than she has previously,” Lynn Rogers of the North American Bear Center said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to hear the sounds of healthy cubs.”
