Jason, Internet-famous cub near Ely, dies
Lynn Rogers doesn't know why the bear cub named Jason died, and he fears he may never find out.
The cub, born over the winter to Internet sensation Lily in a den somewhere near Ely, died at 4:03 p.m. Tuesday, said Rogers, who has been researching bears for 42 years.
But his plans to conduct a necropsy on Wednesday were interrupted when the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources confiscated the carcass, Rogers said.
