This female with her two cubs was seen about two to three weeks after they emerged from their den. These cubs will grow rapidly; in a year, they may be close to 100 pounds. The female is also wearing a radio collar. The PA Game Commission uses the collars to keep track of the number and health of cubs produced each year from selected dens.
