Twenty-nine and Counting

You may have read about #56, age thirty-nine. the oldest-known wild bear out of 60,000 bears "harvested" in Minnesota and "at least a trillion overall."  She's remained alive by staying away from humans and their habitats, researchers report.  They should know because they're the ones who fitted her with a tracking collar thirty-two years ago, when she was a youngling of seven, and have been checking up on her ever since.  They even know the number of litters she's produced--eleven, whch translates to almost thirty cubs.

Beat that, Michelle Duggar.
