This is the post I was referring to:
On Monday, I visited her den to adjust the camera. She came out and stood facing away from me a foot away. Her genitals were more swollen than I’ve ever seen on any bear—a larger area more swollen than any female in estrus. Was she about to give birth? Had she produced a stillborn cub? If the latter, why didn’t anyone see her eat it? I saw nothing in the den.
On Wednesday afternoon, a viewer saw her bury something in the bedding and thought it was a cub. Was the viewer right? Why didn’t anyone else report it?
On Thursday morning, she curled up and spent over 20 minutes licking her genital area and the bedding. Had her water broke? At 3, Lily is at the minimum for reproduction, so there is a question whether she can complete her pregnancy. She was plenty heavy in fall, but a nagging thought is that she may have used up too much energy after fishermen unknowingly disturbed her from this den. Lily temporarily moved 2 miles away and tried unsuccessfully to dig 3 dens in soil that was too rocky. After a few days, she lay down and idly gnawed at some branches. Then she seemed to make a decision. She got up and returned to the present den and raked bedding into it for the winter.

But now people are reporting seeing the cubs.

Yes, everyone has the noise, they are working on getting that stopped. She's always asleep when I check in.

She was moving around quite a bit, just a couple of minutes ago.

I thought there could be some, because I saw so many lumps, but the site hasn't reported seeing any.

Someone just told me that FOX News had video of the cubs and they were bleating like fawns.

I was watching when the cub was born. They kept telling us we would hear them and did we ever. He/she sounded just like a human baby. We thought there was a second one but the team said no. I can't believe how much time I spent watching that bear.
