Bear Counting In Canada

I want to share a link to a very special YouTube video that we obtained through an email sent to Paul Ellis this week.  Rick Mercer and some wildlife experts demonstrate how they perform a winter bear census in the hibernation den of a black bear and her three young cubs.  They are in a park named after the Algonquin Indians located in northern Ontario, Canada.  It has Bear Countingentertainment, education and amazement all rolled up into one video!  Enjoy!
