Two new baby black bears are being added to the growing number of cubs at the Wildlife Center.

A bear and his sibling were orphaned when their mother was hit and killed by a car in Tazwell County.

It took officials longer to capture the second cub, but he's now on the way to the center.

The two cubs are the 15th and 16th bear cubs now living at the Wildlife Center.

They have admitted a record number of black bears this year and they're out of space.
