"A female may mate with several males during a short estrus period and cubs from the same litter may have different fathers. A female black bear can produce a litter of up to five cubs
every 2 years. The average number of cubs is 2 or 3. In Minnesota, 2.5 is average."
Maybe she had 2.5 one year and 2.5 the following year That =5
