Video: Into a black bear’s winter den

WILDLIFE WATCHING -- Bring any kids in the house over to watch this entertaining video of a Canadian TV humorist joining bear biologists as they crawl into a winter den to put a radio collar on an almost hibernating black bear. 
Hint:  They find three little surprises.
Just before going into the den, CBC host Rick Mercer had a few question's for the bear biologist:
"What's the life expectancy o a black bear?"
"They'll live into their 20s."
"What's the life expectancy of a bear expert?"
